History of Chersonesos

The ancient city of Chersonesos is located at the southwest tip of the Crimea on the Black Sea, within the modern city of Sebastopol.

In 1994, teams from the United States, the Ukraine, and the National Preserve of Tauric Chersonesos created the Black Sea Project.

Excavations were conducted around the so-called 1935 basilica, which provided extensive information about earlier excavations as well as the discovery of a Roman synagogue over which the 6th century Christian basilica was built. 

This site contains extensive records of the five years of work at Chersonesos in terms of articles and reports, GIS and other mapping, CAD and similar drawings, photographs, databases and much more.
