Lost Worlds - Karakum: A City Under The Sand The Karakum Dessert in Turkmenistan holds some of the best kept secrets of Central Asia. Italian archaeologist, Gabriele Ruggero Rossi-Osmida has spent years digging under the sand of the Karakum Desert in Turkmenistan and what he found has changed our thinking about the great civilisations of the past. It was previously thought that the ancient world revolved around the great urban civilisations of Egypt, Mesopotamia, Elam and Indus. But Rossi-Osmida has revealed in this documentary sophisticated urban centres, statuettes, pottery and necropolis dating back several thousand years before Christ. (From France, in English and Italian) (Documentary)
Apparently, this civilization was in the throes of changing from a matriarchal society to a patriarchal society. I'm going to do some digging (no pun intended) on this and will let you know what turns up.
Lost World: yes it can be defined like that, while really we have to say Lost Culture (or even roughly Civility (ies) ).
Kara-kum (Black Desert) in Turkmenistan was the site of what is called, after the excavation and findings
of Prof. Gabrele Rossi Osmida; The Civility of Oasis.
But let start from the beginning:
It was Prof. Sarianidi (Russian) who first found the top of iceberg. But he never imagined what it was the huge reality.
Prof. Rossi Osmida start the first excavating mission more than 12 years ago, in the Mary region, and i at that time helped him for logistic diplacement.
We are still in contact, since that times.
What he told me after the first excavation campaign was literally:
"Ivano we found something that will re-write the history".
And that was and is: a culture which has been dated till the early bronze age (abt 4.000 BC)
Unfortunately in the web does not exist any link in English about the over 10 years Rossi Osmida excavation campaign: It was a cultural mission between Italy and Turkmenistan governments. But Rossi Osmida involved also French expert and is for that in the web the sites about are in French.
Prof. Rossi Osmida is from Ligabue Foundation and all publication are in the Ligabue Magazine which is well know only in restricted archaeological circles. He wrote many books which are not available in common editors, those books are well know in such mentioned restricted circles.
So you understood that Gabriele is a person who never want be sensational: just he’s a scientist who
Search, find, report… and never made sensational “construction of what it could have been”.
In short words: Facts are Facts…… and the evidences show the facts that happened.

Here are also one in English, about Sarianidi…… but as I said what it is unknown to the Pubblic is the deep and astonished work of Prof. Rossi Osmida:
