Over the period of October-December 2018, a junior research fellow of the SRL of Archeology at Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University, Olha Zaitseva, completed the research training program at the Institute of Pre- and Protohistoric Archeology at Christian Albrecht University (Kiel, Germany).
The training took place as a part of the CRC-1266 Scales of Transformation research project and was completed under the terms of the Agreement between Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University and the Institute of Pre- and Protohistoric Archeology at Christian Albrecht University in Kiel. CRC-1266 aims to analyze the transformational processes of important stages of human history from the period of late Pleistocene hunters-collectors to early state formations.
The Institute focuses on the archeological research mainly of the Neolithic and Bronze Age, the Paleolithic, as well as early and late Middle Ages and modern times. The Institute of Pre-and Protohistoric Archeology has carried out numerous archaeological researches not only in Germany, but also abroad, in particular, in the settlements of Trypillian culture in Ukraine. During 2017-2018, an international team of researchers from Christian Albrecht University, Institute of Archeology of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, with participation of scientists from Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University and Vinnytsia Mykhailo Kotsiubynskyi State Pedagogical University started exploring the settlements of the Kukuthen-Trypillia cultural complex in the midst of the Southern Bug and Dniester. One of the tasks of the program was to find out more about modern methods of processing and analysis of archaeological data worked out on materials from the settlement White Stone, obtained in 2018 as a result of the joint expedition.
Further cooperation with the Institute of Pre- and Protohistoric Archeology is aimed at preparation of joint research projects, field studies, in particular, the continuation of the work on the study of Trypillia settlements in the Bug-Dniester interstream area.
