Radkan Tower, this conically spired 25m brick tower has baffled visitors for centuries. Was it a tomb? A coronation spot?
Thanks to the discoveries of an archeo-astronomer, it’s now believed the Radkan Tower was an incredibly sophisticated instrument of astronomical science built nearly 800 years ago.
The Radkan Tower had the ability to determine the time of the turn of each season and bringing the happy news of the arrival of spring.
