To the deepest regret, books on history and especially archeology have been much less rarely published during last years. Their substantial and printing level has worsened. The subjects of editions are casual and of unsystematized character. Is not enough both theoretical and specialized works. Therefore the Archeology Fund considers publishing as one of the basic directions of its activities. There is no need to remind of an enormous importance of books on history and archeology for development not only historical, but all humanities and culture of our Fatherland.
