Kazantip Vostochnyi settlement in the 1st century BCE and seismotectonics of the Crimean Azov Region
In 2021, archaeoseismological and geological-geophysical surveys were carried out at the Kazantip Vostochny II settlement and its environs. Seismically induced and seismotectonic deformations have been identified both in the hillfort debris and its environment. They are generated by the source of a strong earthquake. The seismic source had cracked the surface on the settlement to form a seismotectonic rupture and displaced one of its walls. The intensity of the seismic shaking was not less than Io = IX MSK-64 scale. It can be assumed that at the Kazantip Vostochnyi II settlement, signs of the source of a strong earthquake were recorded which took place in the middle of the 1st century BCE (63 BCE?).
Key words: archaeoseismology, seismotectonics,
