From burial data collected from four coastal sites in the Pontic (northern) region of the Black Sea, Petersen (Danish National Research Foundation's Centre for Black Sea studies, U. of Aarhus) challenges views of cultural polarization between the Greeks and local peoples. Instead, mortuary practices at Olbia, Kerkinitis, Panskoe I, and Nymphaion are interpreted within a framework of cultural interaction. The timeframe ranges from when most settlements were established to a crisis period. Based on the author's dissertation (archeology, U. of Aarhus, 2007), the volume includes an overview of Russian archeology and Western theories of burial archeology, site maps, color plates of grave goods, and a summary in Russian.
