Selishche

 

a Russian archaeological term designating the remains of an unfortified settlement. As a rule, selishches present no obvious traces and are therefore difficult to locate. The existence of a selishche may be determined by the presence of a cultural layer and by finding objects owned by inhabitants of the settlement in ancient times. In works of ancient Russian literature the word selishche designated a dwelling, the site of what was once a village, and also a field or plot of arable land located on the site of a former settlement.
