The annual almanac considers the problems of protection and preservation of cultural heritage during the brutal aggression of the Russian Federation on Ukraine. The publication focuses on the destruction of the historical environment and archaeological objects in particular. Broad analogies are drawn with the preservation of cultural monuments during previous conflicts - during the Second World War and the conflict in the Balkans. The articles are devoted to the issues of the destruction of archaeological sites and the functioning of university museums during the Russian invasion, the fate of archaeological collections and monuments during the wars in Europe. Current issues of anthropology and archaeology are considered in a separate section.
The proposed collection will be useful for everyone who cares about the preservation of the cultural heritage and specialists in the field of studying and preserving monuments - preservationists, archaeologists, historians, museum workers, site-protectionists, and students of higher education.
