Overview

Trypillia mega-sites of the Ukraine

The content of the record is structured in six sections according to the TYPE OF INVESTIGATION:-

  • 1 INTRODUCTION provides the Project Overview and lists the members of the research team;
  • 2 TRYPILLIA-CUCUTENI DISTRIBUTION offers a general discussion of Trypillia - Cucuteni settlement distribution, with a sites database, and the fieldwalking results for the Nebelivka micro- (10km) and macro- (25km) regions, including areas investigated, site photos, finds lists and photos.
  • 3 THE PALAEO-ENVIRONMENT covers soil and soil coring descriptions, with micro-morphological descriptions, the Nebelivka 1B sediment core (pollen, micro-charcoal, LoI), data on the use of plants and animals and the distribution of molluscs.
  • 4 THE MEGA-SITE contains geophysical data and interpretation, characterisations of the Quarters, Neighbourhoods, Assembly Houses and Houses in the mega-site, with house sizes, finds from the Intra-Site gridded collection and data on daub coring and preliminary test pits.
  • 5 TRIAL EXCAVATIONS are divided between different locations: trench excavations at the mega-structure, Houses A9, B17 and B18, the pits Sondazh 1, B17, B18 and Sondazh 9 , the 'industrial' feature and the ditch; and test-pits at 88 locations (Assembly Houses and houses) and the barrow. Each excavation documentation follows the same structure of context sheets, plans and sections, trench, pottery and special finds photos and drawings, and finds spreadsheets. Additionally, the mega-structure excavation is presented with GIS shape files for architectural phases, pottery, animal bones and other finds.
  • 6 THE EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAMME presents photo-documentation of the house-building, construction-burning experiments, house-burning and the excavation of the burnt house.

The Project finds are divided between 'the Fond' of the Institute of Archaeology, Kyiv, and the Historical Museum, Kirovograd. The original site documentation is in the Archive of the Kyiv Institute of Archaeology.
