Sevastopol’s predecessor Chersonesos that had existed from the times of the Classic Greece (5th century B.C.) until the end of the Byzantine epoch (15th century A.D.) is a unique spot that allows one to see what the ancient civilisation looked like in reality and not on a textbook page. Traditionally, we view a colonial polis as a ground point directly tied to the metropolis. But actually, it was a system of settlements that we can define as a cell structure – the centre of the city was surrounded by a huge territory consisting of land parcels; each one had an area of approximately 27 ha. Each of these land parcels had a villa and all of them were connected by straight roads. Not surprisingly, the founders of Sevastopol mistook this regularly structured road network for the remnants of a huge megapolis. Sevastopol is the only city in the world where we can actually observe this structure and understand what the ancient civilisation was really like.
