Khazars’ Capital Unearthed
A RUSSIAN archaeologist says he has found the lost capital of the Khazars, a powerful nation that adopted Judaism as its official religion more than 1000 years ago, only to disappear leaving little trace of its culture.
Dimitry Vasilyev, a professor at Astrakhan State University, said his nine-year excavation near the Caspian Sea has finally unearthed the foundations of a triangular fortress of flamed brick, along with modest yurt-shaped dwellings, and he believes these are part of what was once Itil, the Khazar capital. – AP
