TARA in Gobustan

Gobustan is a beautiful volcanic wilderness south west of the Caspian Sea (Azerbaijan) best known as a UNESCO World Heritage rock art site. TARA Chairman visited Gobustan in 2009 at the invitation of the Azerbaijan government. During his visit he also gave a talk at the university in Baku, the capital. Coulson was struck by the similarity between some of the Gobustan rock engravings and rock engravings TARA has recorded in North Africa. Some of the Gobustan art has been dated at over 20,000 years.
