“It is sad that towers for high voltage lines were erected in that 1,600-square-kilometer area where 2,475 ancient stones are arranged in a formulaic pattern,” said Rafet Çavu?o?lu from Van Yüzüncü Y?l University Archeology Department. The stones were discovered in 2004 and create ring-shaped and necropolis structures. The area is a first-degree protection area and there was no permission to install the towers, Çavu?o?lu said.
