Residents of Zaporozhye and guests of the city can see the artifacts found on the washed-up areas of the Dnipro
Employees of the national reserve "Khortytsia" in Zaporizhzhia reported on updating the exhibition of artifacts found after surveying the washed-up areas of the Dnipro.

Currently, visitors to the Museum Studios "City on the Thresholds" have access to an exhibition of almost 80 exhibits that reflect different historical periods: from the Bronze Age to the Cossack period. The researchers also managed to identify stone tools and weapons of the Scythian era, the Middle Ages.
Among the finds that interested archaeologists are fragments of molded dishes and ancient Greek amphorae, a Bronze Age dagger, a sling stone, an arrowhead, a fragment of a mirror, a bracelet, a blacksmith's hammer, etc.

According to museum specialists, the archaeological material found, especially fragments of ceramics, is evidence of a turbulent life in the lower reaches of the Dnieper. This refutes the narrative imposed by the Soviet authorities that this place was a "wild field".

It should be recalled that after the Russian military blew up the Kakhovskaya HPP in June 2023, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine instructed relevant ministries to assess the extent of the damage.

Together with representatives of the Defense Forces, a group was formed consisting of military personnel who, before the war, worked in museums and institutions for the protection of cultural heritage. Among them were representatives of the Khortytsia National Reserve.
Areas that could be of significant historical and archaeological value were surveyed by joint efforts. Artifacts that were found during the survey were processed and recorded. It is part of them that is now presented in the Museum Studios "The City Beyond the Thresholds".
