MOSCOW, April 20, /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has signed a resolution on the establishment of the state historical and archaeological open-air museum Phanagoria, the website of the Russian government reported on Sunday.
The would-be museum will enjoy the status of a federal state budget-financed cultural establishment. Its founder is the Russian Ministry of Culture.
“The new establishment will have such key functions as educational and research activities. It will be tasked to collect, keep, study and maintain the register of museum objects and collections (archaeological finds) and to ensure safety of objects of cultural (archaeological) heritage,” according to the website.
The ancient Greek city Phanagoria is located on the Taman Bay coast between the presnt-day settlements of Sennoi and Primorsky in Russia’s southern Krasnodar Territory. Phanagoria was founded about 540 B.C. It is Russia's biggest site dating back to the age of classical antiquity. Its ancient settlement site and necropolis has an area of about 900 hectares, with about 600 mounds. More than a hundred mounds more are located outside this territory.
