Screeper Rock Cave

The cave is located in a hard to reach cliff, which is made of conglomerates at a height of 200 meters above sea level. Due to cave's location on the high cliff, it was a wonderful look-out post. From the platform in front of the cave ancient residents showed fire and smoke signals for sites near-by. The wide entrance to the cave is from the south-east. Part of the entrance is blocked up by collapsed rocks from the cave's ceiling conglomerate lumps. There are 2 passages 6 and 8 meters long, 3.5 meters wide and 4 meters high. The total area of the cave is 60m². In the past there was a second entrance to the cave but it is blocked up by conglomerates nowadays. At the bottom of the cave at different depths remains of two cultures were found: iron age and neolithic (stone tools, arrowheads, fragments of ceramic pots with various patterns and fire remains). Among dish fragments of Iron age there was a unique finding - the bottom of a vat with old Turk signs. It is the second finding of a vessel with such signs on the shores of Baikal.
