In this book 23 scholars from Ukraine, France, Great Britain, Russia, and Denmark celebrate the 70th birthday of the archaeologist, A.N. Sceglov, who is one of the senior professors at the St Petersburg State University. Sceglov is a pioneer in the investigation and history of ancient Crimea, as well as a widely recognised authority in the study of northern Black Sea antiquities. The Tarchankut expedition established by Sceglov in 1959 explored a number of sites in the remote chora of Tauric Chersonesos. Panskoye I ranks among the most prominent of them, and Sceglov has devoted over 30 years of his life to this unique and exceptionally well-preserved Greek settlement. The contributions to this publication shed new light on a vast range of Black Sea issues: from the earliest settlements and their functions to the formation of a Russian science of classical antiquities. In focus are the important Greek cities Histira, Olbia, Chersonesos, and Herakleia Pontike, their material culture and relationship to their own rural territory and to their non-Greek neighbours. Until now most research in this area has been conducted solely by Russians and published in Russian, but now the rest of the world can get a glimpse of the Black Sea area during antiquity.
