Ukrainian fortresses a study of a strongholds system from the early iron age in Podolia
The macrospatial analysis of fortified settlements in the right ‑bank of Ukraine allows for observations of a few regularities related to the location of sites along the rivers and watersheds. ‘Land’ settlements, e.g. Yakushyntsi or Mlynok, may have connected sites located along large watercourses, e.g. Trakhtemyriv, Rudkivtsi, which specialised in trade with the Greeks.
The project was funded with measures National Science Center awarded by decision numer DEC-2012/07/ B/ HS3/01917.
