Bowls, pottery, a bronze bracelet and glass beads were found during excavations at the Kup necropolis in the village of Samadabad, reported.

Objects found during the construction of the pipeline were transferred to the Yevlakh Historical and Ethnographic Museum. The most interesting finding was the “Goddess of Fertility”. It was of particular importance to the people of that era.

The fertility goddess, made of clay, is first seen in Yevlakh.
