Akali

 

an archaeological site of the Neolithic, Bronze, and early Iron ages (third to first millennia B.C.) in Estonian SSR, on the west bank of Chudskoe Lake, in the estuary region of Emajõgi River. Akali was discovered in 1937 and excavated during 1938, 1939, 1949–52, and 1966. Because of a rise in the level of the rivers, the population gradually migrated up the slope of a hill. Various types of clay pottery are characteristic of Akali: Narva, pit-comb, corded, textiled, cross-hatched, and smooth-walled ceramics. Stone, bone, and amber articles have been found.
