«VITA ANTIQUA» is an edition specializing in the publication of scientific literature on the prehistory, anthropology and archaeology in Eastern Europe. Among the proposed publications are periodic collections of scientific papers «VITA ANTIQUA», as well as the thematic issues on specific scientific problems - particular monographs in “Library of VITA ANTIQUA” series. The publisher of scientific literature is the Th. Vovk Center for Paleoethnological Research - scientific public organization that operates on the base of the Department of Archaeology and Museology of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, whose mission is research and popularization of knowledge of the prehistoric era and representation of Ukrainian archaeology in the world. We hope that the proposed materials will be useful for anyone interested in prehistory, archaeology and anthropology - archaeologists, anthropologists, geographers, historians, ethnographers, and students of higher educational institutions.
