This season we plan to work on Khortitsa Island, visit Kherson region to excavate the Late-Scythian hillforts and join the Institute of Archaeology to provide the research on the “Kamyana Mohyla”. We will also try to publish our results and participate in every interesting project available. It would be great to improve our contacts with archaeological groups in other regions and countries as well. We have some, but it is always good to improve them.
Our main and most beloved project is located here. This is Early Bronze Age site Generalka 2. We conduct researches here for a long time and still have a lot of work to do. We wait for a big informative article about our results soon. It contains our up-to-day ideas about the site. Many researches were already conducted and published.
Comfortable location and conditions of our camp make Generalka one of the best places for first acquaintance with archaeology. Air temperatures are far cry from Egypt ones.
These monadnocks are the result of our work with the French Paleolithic methodic. All finds remain on the place they were found. Later we coordinate them in XYZ system. This is complicated method that is hard to implement. On the other hand it allows us to fixate the huge amounts of material with good quality; to make an operative decisions during the fieldwork; to get a lot of experience in archaeological work and A LOT of patience in everything.
Yes. Artifacts that we found located in museums and funds of institutes and reserves. Our young scholars conduct researches and participate in the conferences and competitions (for instance, Minor Academy of Sciences). Most of intellectual achievements of New Archaeological School can be found in the Net, free-accessed on our web-pages. Welcome!
That is the question. There are a few projects we participate in with other organizations (for example, research of “Kamyana Mohyla”). We have grant or project financing there. But usually we are surviving with the sponsorship of volunteers, friends, kind people and at our own costs. There are not so much of them.
The list with their names will be here faster than you can spell “Shulaveli-Shomutepinskaya culture”.
We wish we had. We have some only if there are some grant finances for that. This is quite rare in Ukraine. The expeditions in Ukraine are really in good position if income exceeds costs.
You can visit us join the archaeological tourism (teenagers and students usually take part in our excavations). You can also join our archaeology club (if you are teenager) if you want. Otherwise, you can support us with donation, we will be grateful to receive any help — food, goods, sleeping bags or any additional support. Any reinforcement is very essential to our science. Without your help archaeology would already be in the past as well as objects of its study.
You can find the answer in the Calendar. If there are no events — it means that we do not know the date yet. You can follow our news here or on Facebook.
We keep in touch with colleagues from Poland, Portugal, Germany, and Moldova. We joined their researches and other events. We don’t have specific plans for now, but try to intensify our work on this.
Page “How to participate” is waiting for you. As well as the “Contact” block. We are open to collaboration
We working in the field from May to September, since most of our volunteers are high school and university students. But we also have some April and October events — short expeditions or exploring works. They may be interesting enough as well.
Camp equipment moved by a truck, people — by cars or using public transport. The expedition itself is static during all the time on one object. We are only visiting nearest villages to buy resources, sometime — interesting objects nearby. We always have car in the camp, because it is necessary to have pharmacy, clinic and stores available all the time.
We are open to your proposals. You can send them on the school mail and we will greet any of your initiative. Especially if your idea will be enhanced with the desire to help.
