3rd Scientific Expedition of the Lublin University of Technology to Central Asia. Part 1 – Kyrgystan. May 13-17, 2019

The first stage of the third expedition was Kyrgyzstan. Employees of the Institute of Computer Science – participants of the expedition, in the persons of prof. Jerzy Montusiewicz, dr inż. Marek Miłosz and dr inż. Jacek Kęsik, scanned the tower-minaret of Burana and a field with stone carvings in the remains of a medieval (X-XII century) city of Baasagun near Bishkek – the capital of Kyrgyzstan. The sculptures were created in the sixth and tenth century AD. The entire museum is under the patronage of UNESCO.

In the area of Lake Issyk Kul in the town of Cholpon-Ata, petroglyphs – rock drawings were scanned. Most of them were created 3-4 thousand years ago. They form the “Petroglyphs of Cholpon-Ata” museum.

The field with stone carvings and petroglyphs was scanned experimentally because it was the first time this type of work was done.

The team also made a series of lectures for students and staff at the Kyrgyz Technical University in Bishkek.
