The workshop location is an isolated picturesque scientific and tourist camp "Denisova Peshchera" (Denis Cave) situated in the Altai Mountains, on the upper Anui river, about 360 km from Barnaul and 500 km from Novosibirsk.
The camp site includes 10 comfortable wooden cabins that can accommodate 40 guests. Each cabin has two suits that can be used either as 2-person family suites or as two separate single rooms.
The Denisova Cave was named after an hermit, Saint Denis, who lived in this cave during the second half of the 18th century. The locals call it Aju-Tasch which means bear rock.
The shape of the cave resembles a chimney; archaeologically, it is the most important cave of Altai, home to prehistoric people who lived in the region thousands of years ago. Over 20 cultural layers have already been excavated, the earliest dating back as far as 300.000 years. Starting from 1990 the cave serves as kind of a testing ground for archaeologists. Various techniques used by the prehistoric people, such as bone tool making, hide curing, cooking, have been scrutinized and reproduced in detail; the site contains reconstructed replicas of prehistoric homes, fireplaces, traps, etc. A guided tour introducing the participants to the history of the cave and the techniques used by the archaeologists is available, along with tours to a number of other archaeologically and paleonthologically interesting objects in splendid locations around the site.
Pictures of Denisova Cave are taken from website of Institute of Archeology and Ethnography of SB RAS (in Russian).
