At the end of July, it was reported that archaeologists discovered a cultural layer of the Khazar period in the Astrakhan region. It is suggested that it may be associated with the capital of the Khazarian Khaganate.
According to Vladimir Sarapulkin, associate professor of the Department of Russian History and Documentation at the Belsu National Research University, the discovery means that the Khazarian capital has become open to archaeology. Now the first ideas about how people lived there were received. But understanding this is still very preliminary because there is a lot of work to be done.
