Abstract

The ancient city of Chersonesus on the Crimean peninsula was founded by Greek colonists in the fifth century BC. Today it is part of an enormous multi-period archaeological site where Greek, Roman and Byzantine ruins mingle with mortar shells and soldiers' skeletons of the Crimean and Second World wars. Aspiring to become a UNESCO World Heritage site, it is now the focus of intense local, national and international interest in its future, as the editor of Public Archaeology explains.
