    area today Baga Gazaryn Chuluu is set in the harsh environment of the Mongolian desert steppe but will appeal to those who enjoy a real challenge 2002 will be the second field season of the Baga Gazaryn Chuluu survey project We hope to survey approximately 130 sq km of land on the north and northeast side of the ridge formation extending outward into the desert steppe The 2003 season provided evidence for a large number of stone features dated to the 2nd and 1st millenniums BC as well as Neolithic Bronze and Iron Age and Medieval habitation sites Ancient petroglyphs can be discovered on the granite outcrops at Baga Gazaryn Chuluu and stone steles erected by early Turkic nomads have been located in the main valley running between the towering peaks We are in search of a group of volunteers who will assist archaeologists from U S and Mongolian research institutions in conducting the survey and assisting with several small scale excavations of burial and habitation sites dated to the Bronze and Early Iron Age 800 400 BC Our project is supported by the Mongolian Institute of Archaeology in Ulaanbaatar and we will be joined by Mongolian archaeologists and students who will collaborate in both the survey and excavations The Baga Gazaryn Chuluu region contains a wealth of archaeological sites and the research program of the 2004 season will help us and other researchers better understand the extraordinary nomadic culture of Mongolia that gave rise to some of the most powerful land empires on earth Volunteers with a variety of backgrounds are invited to work with us at Baga Gazaryn Chuluu and will have opportunities to learn and practice a wide range of field skills including ground survey site mapping use of GPS and GIS site excavation and artifact processing
