Protomeot Burials Unearthed in Taman

Unique protomeot burials have been found in Taman (Krasnodar Territory) in the last days of a volunteer archaeological camp’s work.

They were discovered near a defensive moat of the 6th century B.C.

This find changes the set-up opinion that Greek immigrants grew roots in empty territories and only then came in contact with local population.

“We have found a series of burials and sites of the protomeot – early Scythian time, to be more exact – the 9th -7th centuries B.C. The sepulchers stand out not only due to their ritual, but also with their stock, such as pots, bowls etc. So these are the guys who met the first colonists", – the head of East Bosporus archaeological expedition of the Archeology Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences Nikolay Sudarev said.
