The archeologists carried out excavations on the upper terrace of the settlement called “Glade.”
“The ancient city’s excavations allow us to trace ‘barbarian’ people’s life style, spiritual, cultural and economic activities. No other settlement provides us with such information,” the statement reads.
Archeological team “Meotida” began excavation back in 2014.
Traces of soil formed in ancient times led archeologists to believe that the ancient constructions were at the time abandoned by its inhabitants and remained deserted for some time. Some time later, the houses were destroyed by natural causes.
Archeologists also believe that the settlement depopulated due to an unpleasant military-political situation in the region, but this remains just a theory.
During the summer expedition, archeologists also explored caves and the outskirts of a mud volcano on the Azov Sea coast in the eastern part of Crimea.
