A group of scientists from the National University of Uzbekistan accidentally discovered a huge treasure while conducting research in the basement of an ancient building in the capital Tashkent.
It is known that this treasure was hidden about 84 years ago, and the old building was built in the 1870s. The treasure was discovered in a secret room located underneath the building’s basement. Before finding it, no one knew about it because the entrance to the room was hidden.
The treasures include works of art, gold and silver bars, symbols, items made from precious metals and more…
