Authors: Oleg Saveliev

Keywords: Roman Empire, Tyras, Roman time, material culture, history of studies


The first period (the second quarter of the 19th – the end of the 19th centuries) has been characterized by a long but unsystematic accumulation of materials represented by chance finds. Mostly Greek and Latin inscriptions and coins have been studied. In the second period (1900–1940), the archaeological study of Tyras has begun. They have managed to establish the cultural layers thickness; materials of excavations have been actively published, historical observations of a general nature made. The third period (40s – early 60s of the 20th Century) is associated with the beginning of a systematic study of the site. Important construction and production complexes have been discovered. Systematization of mass material has begun. The questions of economy, trade, ethnocultural relations of the city with the outside world have been raised. In the next period (from the late 60s of the 20th Century until now), high-quality observations of the monument’s stratigraphy and its boundaries have been performed, a representative collection of materials has been amassed; the materials collected are being actively introduced into scientific circulation.
