Baku. Kamala Guliyeva – APA. Robots will be used in study of the underground roads in Azerbaijan from April 15, deputy director for scientific affairs at the Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences Ganja Scientific Center Samir Pishnamazzade told APA. He said 8-member delegation of the Department of Archaeology and Ethnography, Smithsonian Institute of the U.S will visit Ganja on April 15. They will start to study underground roads of Ganja and define their archaeological ages with the ANAS Ganja Scientific Center.

Pishnamazzade said that robots will be used in study of the underground roads for the first time in Ganja, Azerbaijan: “Robots were used in the study of Zoroastrian burial mounds in Turkmenistan for the first time in the former USSR. It was agreed during Director of Asian Cultural History Program of Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History Paul Taylor’s visit to Ganja. The U.S. experts will bring robots. It is possible to move down Ganja’s underground roads totally in the depth of 200 m. It is impossible to go further due to the vacuum. However, it is not a problem for robots. Robots will carry camcorders. They will also work as archaeologists, take soil sample and determine its age."

Smithsonian Institute has studied underground roads of the Egyptian pyramids.
