Defensive Towers height[edit]

I read that defensive towers were 30m high somewhere else to. But I'm not sure if that's true. Searching for evidences but I think they were maximum 20 or 25 meters high... Normally they had 5 or 6 floors+3 or 4meter height of first floor(in defensive reasons) level from terrain. it makes 6xFloor hight+4meters=30 that mean each floor was in best case 6 meters high.. thats impossible..(and not esthetic) So in my opinion someones wrote 30 in place 15 or 20 and other followed his/her mistake... By the way the towers I saw in real wer far lower than 10floors building --Nakh 09:54, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Moved most of tower-related sections to a new article[edit]

The detailed descriptions of the Nakh medieval towers were moved to their own article, Vainakh medieval towers. There was too much technical detail for this article, which is meant to be a genaral survey of all aspects of the history and culture of the Nakh peoples.
I am not sure what is the proper name for the new article ("Vainakh" or "Nakh"? "medieval" or "Medieval"? etc.) Suggestions? All the best, --Jorge Stolfi (talk) 18:38, 11 November 2009 (UTC)

Vainakh is mostly used by Nakh people theirself. It means "our people" like our relatives, in that Nakh is "People". People prefer to call that Ethnic group "Nakh". I dont know does it matter if its written "m" or "M". Nakh 04:27, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

darghafs[edit]

Charnel vaults at a necropolis near the village of Dargavs, North Ossetia built in typical Nakh style[citation needed].

this image should not be in this article. the "built in typical Nakh style" seems to be original research

to Nakh (talk · contribs): if you dont give any source about nakh style i will be to delete the image.--Bouron (talk) 12:00, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Dear Bouron, It's well known that ancestors of Ossetians (Scythians, Sauromats and Alans) practised nomad culture and they had no advanced architecture. We also know that these people share not only the Vainakh architecture traditions but also Byzantian. for example Churches built by Alans are in traditional Byzantium style. I didn't published my researches on this issue, will cite if find someone elses. PS: Byzantum church was also shared by Georgians and Armenians. Nakh 04:50, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for your understanding. --Bouron (talk) 11:52, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
