Археологические культуры "варваров" Северного Причерноморья в III в. до н.э. - III в.н.э.: критика этнической объяснительной модели
Conclusions about the cultural and historical processes in the barbarian world of the North Black Sea region of the Early Iron Age, which were made according to the archaeological material, add little new to the historical picture obtained from written and epigraphic sources. The universal model of permanent «Sarmaticization» of the regional Barbaricum, which still dominates in the archaeological works, contradicts both to the historical examples and the accumulated archaeological data-base on the background of the disclosure its information capacity through the development of new historical methods. The chosen methods of research until now were applied inconsistently, their logic was broken. It is necessary to radically rethink the existing scientific tradition in the ontological, epistemological and methodological respect, which requires a change in the approach and even style of scientific thinking.
