Ancient Pot at Archeological Site of Gonur Depe, Turkmenistan
Composed mainly of one to two foot mud walls, the site of Gonur Depe (outside Mary) is not terribly photogenic. What makes it a fantastic place to visit, however, is that it still contains fragments of pottery and bones from civilizations dating back to 1500-2500 BC. It's easy to feel like an archeologist as you trip over and kick up surprisingly intact remains.
