The investigation of spatial organization of ancient land-use in North-West Crimea using geoarchaeological methods

Resulting from the investigations in North-West Crimea (on Tarkhankut peninsula in the vicinity of Yevpatoria (ancient Kerkinitida) using multidisciplinary (geoarchaeological) approaches, subject to determination being a topological structure and metric parameters in the system of land-use for cultivating grain crops dated back to the middle of IV c. B.C. For the first time, they discovered and thoroughly investigated vineyards of the second half of IV Ś early III c. B.C. for which spatial organization they used the Chersonesos individual space modulus. Subject to determination being the conjugacy of two homesteads and their land allotments, forming complete economic complexes, which expands a notion on organization forms in the remote Chora of Chersonesos.
