A group of representatives of the local media, organized by the Azerbaijani Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources, has visited the Azykh village of the Khojavend district and the Azykh Cave liberated from occupation.
Report’s employee sent to Khojavend says that the head of the biodiversity protection service of the ministry, Firuddin Aliyev, told reporters about the Azykh Cave, which is considered the first settlement in Azerbaijan.
“The research was started by Mammadali Huseynov in 1960, and a female lower jaw was discovered in 1968. Unfortunately, in 1993, the Armenians carried out illegal archaeological excavations, and the archaeological samples found here were transported to foreign countries. There is no information about these samples, and they are lost. The primary tools of labor of the Bronze Age were found here. In addition, the Azykh Cave is one of six paleoanthological monuments existing in Azerbaijan,” he said.
