The application period for participation in the international youth volunteer contest "Unveil mysteries of The Valley of Kings" starts on December 20, 2014. The winners will participate in the fifth field season of the archaeological and geographical expedition "Kyzyl - Kuragino".

"Kyzyl - Kuragino" is one of the most significant projects of the Russian Geographical Society and the largest integrated archaeological and geographical expedition in Russia today. It is being held every summer since 2011 on the territory of the Republic of Tuva and Krasnoyarsk Krai - in the area of the construction of a new railway.

There are monuments of different eras - from ancient sites of primitive man to medieval fortifications, including unique multi-layer sites of the Neolithic and the Bronze Age and monuments of the Stone Age, which are hundreds of thousands years old.

To help archaeologists in studying and preserving this cultural heritage, the Russian Geographical Society assembles volunteers to take part in the expedition.

Traditionally in summer two field camps are organized for volunteers: Ermak in Krasnoyarsk Krai and The Valley of the Kings in the Republic of Tyva. During four field seasons about 2 thousand volunteers participated in the expedition! Not only from Russia, but also from foreign countries.

Each of them got a valuable experience, unforgettable impressions and found new friends.
