Polish scientists have discovered an ancient city in Ukraine


Fragments of Byzantine construction of an ancient city Tyritake in Ukraine were discovered in this season by archaeologists from the National Museum in Warsaw

Polish Archaeological Mission of the National Museum in July and August carried out excavations in the framework of the project “Bosporan City Tyritake”. During this work on the territory of today's Kercz a large fragment of stone constructions of Tyritake from the Byzantine period was uncovered.

Very rarely, in such a short time during the first season of excavations archaeologists manage to carry out such important discoveries – stressed the director of the archaeological mission Alfred Twardecki.

The archaeological discoveries on Crimea have become the object of interest of president of Ukraine Wiktor Juszczenko, who declared his support for the project and the participation of the National Museum in Warsaw, when visiting the Polish expedition in August.
