An excellent archaeological guidebook written by the excavators of the Greek cities and sites of the Crimea. Rich and powerful colonies, as Pantikapaion (Kerch) center of the Bosporan Kingdom, and Chersonessos which dominated the SW part of the peninsula, as well as less important cities such as Tyritaka and Myrmekion, are presented as detailed as needed for the vast public while many subjects are clarified for students and scholars. The publication is bilingual: in Russian and English.
