Turkology news discussed at KAZNU

The event was also attended by famous Turkologists of the country, professors and students. The event was organized by the International Turkic Academy together with the Faculty of Philology and History of KazNU.

Opening the event, the Chairman of the Board - Rector of KazNU Al-Farabi Zhanseit Tuymebaev noted the importance of scientific discovery in Turkic history. «The complex and the inscription of Kutlug Elteris-kagan, found as a result of the work of a scientific archaeological expedition on the Nomgon plain, Arkhangay aimag of Mongolia, is a great find for Turkology» the rector noted. This news requires a new approach to the historical path of the Turkic-speaking peoples from the origins to the present day. The well-known archaeologist Altangereliin Enkhtur spoke at the event, who for the first time identified complexes on the Nomgon plain and introduced some of the results of archaeological research conducted jointly with the International Turkic Academy. The scientist described this historical area: «The Arkhangai region of Mongolia, the Khashaat region, on the Nomgon plain, there are 9 ancient Turkic ritual complexes. In the western north of this plain rises Mount Ikh Nomgon, in the eastern south, Mount Baga Nomgon. In the northern part of the complexes there is a high mountain with sharp peaks Hogno-Khan. The front of this mountain is described as «clear dunes, called sandy remnants» in the south, which extend for several kilometers from west to east. According to the scientist, the first complexes were cataloged in 2001, since then their location has changed a lot. Excavations of monuments of the Turkic era in Mongolia will continue. The participants of the round table noted that the ancient relics returned from time immemorial are of great value not only for the Turkic people, but also for all civilized mankind as a whole. The scientists emphasized that the found ancient relic would have to be comprehensively studied and systematized. In their speeches, industry experts touched upon topical issues of Turkic studies, such as the study of Turkic languages, translation of texts from the Orkhon, Yenisei, Talas written monuments from the original, and demonstration of the continuity of Turkic languages. In order to increase and preserve the common Turkic heritage, joint participation in scientific research is necessary.
