Yahniatyn settlement

Yahniatyn settlement [Ягнятинське поселення; Ya hniatynske poselennia]. A Cherniakhiv culture settlement of the 2nd to 6th century near Yahniatyn, Ruzhyn raion, Zhytomyr oblast. Discovered in 1927 and excavated in 1946–7, the site produced evidence of 10 surface dwellings with wood frames and clay walls along with the remains of 2 two-room pottery workshops (one of which contained traces of a single-layered kiln). Artifacts uncovered at the site include local pottery, imported 4th to 5th century amphoras, knives, swords, clasps, and 2nd-century Roman coins.
