I believe that the Black and Caspian Sea areas in general are where many answers to questions regarding the beginnings of civilization will be found and have no doubt many amazing discoveries from these areas will come to light not to mention better investigation of those we already do know of. Hats off to the several groups of independant Russian researchers who have not only explored much of these areas and provided video of things we would otherwise have no clue existed, but also their documentation of known megalithic sites around the world. The internet owes these folks a great debt of gratitude.
