(ORDO NEWS) — In the village of Kuchugury, Temryuk region, archaeologists have completed excavations of an ancient settlement.
The results of the expedition are reported on the website of the administration of the Krasnodar Territory.
It is noted that archaeologists have discovered stone foundations on which buildings were built from adobe blocks.
Most of the finds were ceramic vessels of various shapes and purposes, as well as household items – a grater plate and weaving weights.
“The single finds were copper coins, which allowed scientists to date the archeological monument from the 3rd to the 1st century BC,” the report says.
To date, scientists have finished exploring only a small part of the monument, but judging by the findings, the history of the ancient settlement is connected with the political and economic changes that the Bosporan kingdom underwent during this period.
Archaeologists suggest that the settlement in ancient times was the city of Kimmerik, named after the Cimmerian nomads who lived here.
