In 2008 the National Museum of Warsaw began archaeological excavations in Crimea at the site of an ancient Greek town of Tyritake (Kerch), which was founded by Greeks in 6th century BC. Six years of active work brought many interesting findings and discoveries, but after the annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation in 2014 the archaeological research was suspended for an indefinite period. After a year long pause, the Museum renewed collaboration with Ukrainian colleagues as part of the modified project “Antique monuments of the Black Sea” in the new location: Olbia, one of the richest and most important Greek colonies in this part of the Black Sea coast.
