In October 2016, in the educational-scientific laboratory of archeological research of ZNU Professor Iryna Nechayeva (Ohlone College, California, USA) analysed the anthropological collections gathered by the specialists of the laboratory for 30 years. The purpose of research is studying of the nutritional basics and the economic adaptation of the population in Scythian times.
Iryna Nechayeva noted that the anthropological fund of the archaeological laboratory of ZNU was one of the largest in Ukraine, truly a "Klondike" for researchers who study ancient societies. Indeed, there you can find artifacts from the Neolithic to the late Middle Ages inclusive. The materials were previously studied by anthropologists from Kyiv, Odessa, Poltava. Today, thanks to the introduction of new technologies, there is a possibility to reach a new level of communication and cooperation. In this context it is not surprising that anthropologists of different countries will refer to the materials collections, to this "golden" fund of anthropology, which ZNU has.
Furthermore, Iryna Nechayeva had a conversation with teachers and students of the Department of History. During the meetings they were discussing the issues of historical science, pedagogics, current problems of education at the present stage. The Professor expressed deep gratitude to the leadership of the University and the laboratory for the opportunity to work with collections of educational and scientific laboratory of archeological research of ZNU.
