Geoarchaeological research in the Black Sea and the Azov Sea

Recherches géoarchéaologiques en Mer Noire et en Mer d’Azov

*  *  *

Published on Wednesday, October 29, 2014 by João Fernandes

Summary

Since the first studies undertaken in 1783 by Gablitz on the chora of Chersonesos, the Black Sea comprises an important area to look at the rural and coastal development of the Greek colonial world. Systematic surveying of ditches and walls that line the western coast of Crimea, initiated within the framework of Catherine II’s Greek project, began several decades before the earliest excavations of the urban spaces in 1832. A decisive new step was made during the 1960s, when archaeological surveys provided fresh insights into the internal organization of several kleroi close to Chersonesos, Kerkinitis and Kalos Limen. Around the same time, in the western Black Sea, the first research on the territory of Istros began, complemented by numerous geomorphological studies of the neighbouring Danube Delta. The foundations of geoarchaeological inquiry had been laid, and these have since been added to thanks to recent research undertaken throughout the Pontic area.

The aim of this issue, to be published in 2016, is to furnish a state-of-the-art of recent research on the Black Sea and Azov Sea by presenting data obtained within the context of current projects in the field of geoarchaeology and physical geography, applied to protohistory or the historical periods, through the lens of Greek colonization of the region. The papers should follow the publication guidelines of Méditerranée (http://mediterranee.revues.org/), with a particular emphasis on geographical approaches. Two reviewers will read each article.

This issue of Méditerranée will be jointly edited by A. Baralis (Musée du Louvre), V. Kuznetsov (Moscow Institute of Archaeology), N. Marriner (CNRS), C. Morhange (Université d’Aix-Marseille), A. Porotov (University Lomonossov of Moscow) and V. Zinko (Demetra Foundation, Kerch).
