We have dug out several rooms built, apparently, in the Hellenistic time. It I was a chora (the agricultural territory of antique cities) of Bosporus the state which existed in the territory of the Kerch and Taman peninsulas in the 5-6th centuries AD. We have found fragments of amphoras with brands from Rhodes, quite interesting ceramic lamp, fragments the of Megara bowls with a relief ornament, parts of the black-glazed ware", Elena Aleksandrovna tells

One more group of Belgorod students has joined expedition group Fratria and worked in the wildlife refuge Syuyurtash at the coast of Azov, at other monument the Golden East ancient settlement. From July 18 to July 30 the national team of students and volunteers dug out the ancient settlement of the 3-2nd centuries BC. According to the head of Fratria the associate professor of world history of BelSU Sergey Prokopenko, it was the settlement of crisis times.

The Belgorod archeologists worked not only on Azov, but also at the Black Sea coast of the Kerch Peninsula. They have excavated the antique ancient settlement Kitey.
