  2. Here is a kind of biography of the author I found "About:I defended my PhD in 1998 at the University of Kiev (Taras Shevchenko National University of Kiev). During 1988−1995 I studied history, archaeology and museology at the University of Kiev, and in 1996−2000 I was employed as a lecturer at the Department of Archaeology and Museology of the same university.
