Trypillian Civilization Tour
About Trypillia - 2
Presently, about 2000 settlements of the Trypillian civilization are known in Ukraine. The territory of the Trypillian culture expansion covers forest-steppe areas, from the river Dniester on the West to the middle of the river Dnipro on the East. Several recognized regional types of the culture are linked with the basins of the largest rivers, Dniester, Southern Bug and Dnipro.
Several archaeological expeditions
explore the Trypillian
antiquities every year. These
expeditions are organized by The Institute
of Archaeology of The National Academy of
Science of Ukraine, by various colleges
and national museums.
The most important relics are kept at the
Scientific Fund of the Institute
of Archaeology and some other organizations.
Our tour will take you to the places which
one cannot visit otherwise.
First of all, this tour is a chance to immerse yourself into historical wonders of ancient Ukraine. But it is, also, a chance to learn and to understand how ancient history, that was not recorded on stone or parchment, can live in people's memory and transform into legends and tales that are alive and thrive to present days. The tour is a unique and rare chance to enjoy (before any scientific or popular publication) the latest archeological discoveries in the field of the most ancient cultures among which are the cultures of Ukrainian and European peoples.
Expedition will be guided by the experienced historian and archaeologist Dr. Mykhailo Videiko. Dr. M. Videiko has a PhD in history and archeology, he is a Senior Researcher at The Institute of Archaeology of The National Academy of Science of Ukraine, and the Vice-President of The Dyvich-Hora International Fund, which protects and researches the relics of the Trypillian culture.
