Researchers to Follow Traces of Ataman Yermak

Geophysics and archeologists are going to organize a joint expedition in the Sverdlovsk Region in search of settlements of squads of Ataman Yermak, the historic conqueror of Siberia.
      As the initiator of the project Viktor Ivanchenko explains, he was driven to search for settlements of the great Russian Cossack ataman by lack of any resultant diggings by Russian archeologists and historic research. Up to now there is no scientifically proven chronology of Yermaks campaign: history has only some legends about towns that appeared on the places of winter settlements of the conqueror of Siberia and his forces.
      It is interesting to note that in the course of the expedition the researchers are going to use to the maximum geophysical methods, such as electrical prospecting, magnetic survey and geo radars. This will minimize the expense on digging and cut down the time of the expedition.
