Rostov scientists found an estate of nomads of the XIV century in settlement Azak of Golden Horde
«The structure of the city was as follows: there was a city centre, around which there was a chain of cemeteries, and behind this chain there were streets of the outskirts of the city where the population was more sparse, and then there was the outer zone of the burial grounds. We expected to find a cemetery [at the outskirts] which was spotted at 20 m from the digging site, but in fact found a residential estate. It’s not even a suburb, it’s actually outside [the city], because the edge of the city was marked with graves,» he explained.
Maslovski said that the manor found in the suburb of Azak means that the boundaries of the city were much wider than the scientists had assumed.
