S.Caucasus Inscriptions, Azerbaijan and Iran

Türkic Script

The nomadic Türkic tribes that inhabited Azerbaijan between the 4th and 8th centuries AD used a Türkic script, which is also indigenous to some of the Germanic peoples of Northern Europe, Britain, Scandinavia and Iceland. Examples of this type of writing can be found carved on the Garga Dashi rocks near the Nuvadi settlement in the Megri district now in Armenia. The inscriptions in this script have also been found in the North Caucasus mountains and Altai. This alphabet has been carefully studied and documented.

Türkic alphabet used by the nomadic Turkic tribes that inhabited Azerbaijan between the 4th and 8th centuries AD.

Details of find:

In 1993 in the Djabrail district of Azerbaijan was found the a stone with Ancient Türkic inscriptions. The war (i.e. Azerbaijano-Armenian war for Karabakh - Translator's note) prevented investigation of the monument. The inscription has not been read (it was drawn). The monument of the Ancient Turkic culture will be investigated by the Armenian scientists.

2. Stone spindle from Djalilabad district of Azerbayjan

Details of find:

This monument is a bottom part of a spindle made from clay and sand. The artifact has a roundish form. In the middle of the spindle is an hollow for a shaft. On the top and bottom part are Ancient Türkic inscriptions almost undistinguishable from the Orkhon-Enisean inscriptions.

3. Monument Rock Inscriptions from Montain Gargadashy of Azerbaijan

Details of find:

In the 1985 a rural teacher and philologist Gamza Weli found on the Gargadashy mountain near the village Nuvedi of the Zangezur district in the present Armenia (that area, like the Geychi district, were taken from the Azerbaijan and presented to the present Armenian republic, the former Irevan province of the Russian empire) a number of stones with unknown inscriptions. In the opinion of some scientists and Türkologists, these monuments belonged to the Ancient Turkic tribes. It is impossible not to agree with it. At the first look at these inscriptions is possible to see a similarity with the Kktüric alphabet, but there are also divergences. Mainly the reason is that the letters are connected by that letters found on the monuments in the Gargadashy mountain are connected, whereas in the Kktüric alphabet they are never linked. This alphabet has some outward similarity with the Uigur alphabet. Gamza Weli asserted that the alphabet, written in these monuments, is older than Kktüric alphabet...

Dating: 8 c AD
