Fieldwork area

The area investigated by the Džarylgač Survey project (DSP) is located around the Lake Džarylgač comprising four different zones that differ according to relief, soils, land use, archaeological visibility and known archaeological features. During the three campaigns we will cover a transect that is likely to give insight in the long term settlement dynamics of the Džčarylgač lake area.

The four topographical zones are:

b)     the relatively flat area with good soils surrounding the lake Džarylgač. This area is regularly ploughed and divided into plots. Visibility is good in ploughed fields and known archaeological features till now consist of pottery scatters mainly.
c)     the inland slopes. This area has thin soils and is mainly in use as pasture. Visibility is very low and known archaeological features consist of kurgan burial mounds and cists and deserted Tartar villages recorded on old maps. This area is targeted for a large-scale wind power plant by the company Nova-Eco.
d)   the top of the slopes. This area also has thin soils and is mainly in use as pasture. Visibility is low and known archaeological features consist of kurgan mound burials and wells.
