    The Cave Complex "Dovbush Rocks"

    Looks and feels very ancient.
    Wikipedia is very short about it is an understatment:
    The Rocks of Dovbush is a group of natural and man-made structures carved out of rock at around 980 m ASL in the Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast (province) of western Ukraine. The name of the formations comes from a leader of the opryshky movement, Oleksa Dovbush.
    The rocks are a part of the Polyanytskiy Regional Landscape Park.
    That´s it, no date no theory.

    Let´s take a look:




    This they call the Lion´s Face. Could have been carved to some extend.

    On the territory surrounded by caves and rocks, there is an ancient well. Today its depth is 4 feet, although in ancient times it was much deeper.
    Here is an oversight of the Caves in russian

    This aeration of the rock, I don't know how else to describe it, looks quite unusual and strange to me. Would our resident geologist, Hervé, or anyone, be able to give it a name?

    Dang, that looks pretty natural - however unusual.

    I was hoping we had discovered definitive proof of acoustic wave softening of stone to facillitate carving.

    Yep, it's called "weathering" or differential weathering/erosion


    A natural arch produced by erosion of differentially weathered rock in Jebel Kharaz (Jordan)



    Tafoni at Salt Point State Park, Sonoma County, California.



    Salt weathering of sandstone near Qobustan, Azerbaijan.



    Salt weathering of building stone on the island of Gozo, Malta



    Weathering effect of acid rain on statues


    ... then there are the BIG ones:


    Bimmah or Falling Star Sinkhole in Oman. Most sinkholes are caused by karst processes—for example, the chemical dissolution of carbonate rocks[4] or suffosion processes.[5]

    let´s take a look at another topic the mainstream media would want to avoid most times, Elongated Skulls in russia.
    Actually the first elongated skulls that were found in russia were the Omsk Skulls. Found near the siberian City Omsk. But back then nobody really paid much Attention. But more on them later. Among many alternative Researchers elongated skulls is quite a toppic.

    Yakovenkovo, Crimea
    The remains of a 1.5-year-old boy with a large elongated skull were found near the village of Yakovenkovo in the eastern part of the Crimean Peninsula, says the Archaeology Fund (www.archae.ru), a group that organizes digs across Central Russia, Crimea and Northern Africa. The grave of boy dates back to the second century.

    1,5 years old, that big skull, explain this quakademics




    Source:
    https://www.rt.com/viral/397750-crim...ave-boy-skull/

    Arkaim (for the Site see Post about Arkaim (aka Swastika City aka Mandala City)
    The remains were found in Arkaim, near Chelyabinsk in central Russia, a settlement dating back almost 4,000 years. It is believed the woman belonged to a tribe that was part of what is now modern day Ukraine.

    The skeleton is thought to date to the second or third century AD, making it considerably younger than the site.

    Arkaim is located in the Southern Urals in Russia and is thought to date to the 17th century BC. The 220,000 square foot (20,000 square meter) settlement was protected by two circular walls before it was burned down and abandoned. It had a central square surrounded by two circles of houses separated by a street. Historian K.K. Bystrushkin likened the site to Stonehenge in 2003, saying both allowed ancient people to study the stars. But Arkaim is thought to have been more advanced. Stonehenge allows for observations of 10 astronomical phenomena using 22 elements, while Arkaim enables observations of 18 phenomena using 30 elements. This means that ancient people could have observed and tracked certain events in the sky by using the site in certain ways from particular positions, and that Arkaim offered more observable events than Stonehenge.









    Kislovodsk

    From the Museum of Kislovodsk. Kislovodsk is a city in the federal subject of Stavropol Krai in South Russia. The skulls were found in a valley on the outskirts of the city.

    Pyatigorsk

    In Pyatigorsk, Russia (South-West Russia, between the Black Sea and Caspian Sea), more elongated skulls. The Pyatigorsk museum of regional studies has them on display.

    "The Pyatigorsk skull was found at the excavation site of the Khasaot burial ground in the vicinity of Kislovodsk," says Doctor of Historical Sciences Vladimir Kuznetsov, the author of numerous studies of history of the North Caucasus. "The skull is part of culture of the ancient Alani. Approximately, it dates back to the 3rd - 5th centuries A.D. These strange skulls appeared at the same time when the Sarmatian and Alani hordes came around. Some of the nomads moved for the North Caucasus in 15th century."




    The Tobol River

    The Tobol river runs through Kazakhstan and the Russian federation. The excavation was an old burial site, called Ustyug-1, which dated from the 4th to the 6th century BC, and is located in the middle reaches of the Tobol River. According to experts of the Institute of Northern Development SB RAS (IFSP SB RAS), one of the people buried in the cemetery underwent skull deformation. Anthropological reconstruction of the skull of the man, which was 35-40 years old, is shown below. Reconstruction was done by Elena Alekseeva. During the excavation, which was led by Natalia Matveeva, a professor of Tyumen State University, and doctor of historical sciences, the researchers studied 19 mounds and discovered the remains 30 men, women and children. The burials were located not only under the mounds, but also between them. Some of the graves had already been looted and destroyed. A lot of them had long skulls. Test were done by a professor Gerasimov, who said that the skull volume was about 1/4 more than a normal human skull.





    Omsk

    Then there is the following story about elongated skulls found nearby the city of Omsk in Siberia in the 1990's!

    Russian archeologists in the Siberian city of Omsk have found unusual elongated human skulls found in nearby forest, in burial mounds. The archeological team has begun studying bizarre, elongated human skulls found in a nearby forest almost ten years ago. Scholars at the Omsk Museum of History and Culture have no conclusive answer as to the origins of these skulls, which were found in burial mounds that are believed to date from the 4th century A.D. Because of the skulls' bizarre shape they do not show them to the public, fearing that people might be too shocked.
