Archaeological Sites of Kazanka Raion of Mykolaiv Oblast (on materials of A.O. Sikorskyi)
The paper gives a brief analysis of the surface finds from the archeological settlements of Vysun region located in the southern part of Kazanka Raion of Mykolaiv Oblast according to the field diaries of the discoverer – historian, teacher Anatolii Sikorskyi. Those sites were studied between 1960 and the 1980s. The materials collected by the researcher are mainly stored in the funds of Mykolaiv Regional Museum of Local History and Bereznehuvate Raion Folk History and Local Lore Museum.
A.O. Sikorskyi’s studies were the background for the archaeological map of Vysun region and in particular the southern part of Kazanka Raion. Sikorskyi’s activity is in some way related to the phenomenon of ‘citizen science’, when a wide range of volunteers is involved in scientific research. In the case of A.O. Sikorskyi, the interest in the ancient past of the region grew into a professional activity. As we know from the memoirs of fellow villagers and the researcher’s family, his contemporaries actively participated in those studies.
The paper introduced into scientific circulation a number of sites of Kazanka Raion in Vysun region as a part of the heritage of one of the researchers of Mykolaiv region archeological map. The current study is based on the private archive of the researcher.
