Donets

 

an ancient Russian city of the 10th-14th centuries, now an archaeological site on the outskirts of Kharkov, (Ukrainian SSR) on a high promontory of the right bank of the Uda River. Donets arose on the site of a Scythian settlement (fifth century B.C.) and an early Slavic town of the eighth-tenth centuries. It is mentioned in the Hypatian Chronicle for 1185. The city consisted of a kremlin (detinets), fortified by an earthen bank with a wooden wall, and a posad (merchants’ and artisans’ quarter) stretching 1.5 km along the shore. V. A. Gorodtsov (in 1902), A. S. Fedorovskii (in 1929-30), and B. A. Shramko (in 1955-61) conducted the principal excavations. Dwellings, farm structures, grain pits, a smithy, the remains of bronze foundries and bone-cutting workshops, and potters’ kilns were found.
