An archaeological dig at the ruins of Chersonesus, an ancient Greek colony on the Crimean peninsula founded 2,500 years ago, paints a picture of daily life in the rural town. The land was never reinhabited, so the remains of Chersonesus are well-preserved. "For instance, in one of the excavated ruins we have found the remains of a whole family. So we're working on a murder scene dating back 2,300 years," said project director Vladimir Stolba.
