Novocherkassk culture

 

Novocherkassk culture

The Chernogorovka and Novocherkassk cultures (ca. 900 to 650 BC) are Iron Age steppe cultures in Ukraine and Russia, centered between the Prut and the lower Don. They are pre-Scythian cultures, associated with the Cimmerians.

In 1971 the Vysokaja Mogila kurgan (graves number 2 and 5) was excavated in the Lower Dnieper River basin. Grave number 5 dates to the late Chernogorovka period (900-750 BC) and grave number 2 to the younger Novocherkassk period (750-650 BC).

The Novocherkassk culture expands to a larger area between the Danube and the Volga and is associated with the Eastern European Thraco-Cimmerian artefacts.
