Abstract

The correspondence of Vasyl Oleksiyovych Gorodtsov (1860—1945) and Oleksiy Ivanovich Terenozhkin (1907—1981), the iconic persons for Russian and Ukrainian archaeology, is attractive first of all as the dialog between the Teacher and the disciple. Eight letters of Terenozhkin are kept in archive collection of Gorodtsov in the Department of written sources of the State Historical Museum, two letters of Gorodtsov are present in the private archive of Terenozhkin. That communication was not long-lasting, only during years of 1939—1942, though the letters of those years elucidate some of previously unknown facts and events of episodes and affairs of the scientific activity of Terenozhkin and intricacies of his fate, in particular, in Uzbekistan. The letters dated by the years of 1939—1941 are related to the period of Terenozhkin’s search of his scientific mission and destiny and the beginning of his working in Uzbekistan: the transfer to Tashkent, energetic start of the archeological and teaching activities. In these letters he was eager to share with Gorodtsov the first results of the exploration in the zone of construction of Big canal of Tashkent and in Ak-Tepe hillfort, to acquaint the Teacher with the treasure of Chimbailyk and to ask an advise regarding its chronology. The letters dated by the years of 1941—1942 were written when Terenozhkin participated in World War II combat but their major subjects were the same: the archeology, the thoughts about the adoring science and the hope to meet the teacher in the future. The letters of Gorodtsov were imbued with the amiability and sincere interest to the work of his disciple in Central Asia. He emphasized the importance of the newest archeological findings in Turkenstan, shared the news about the work progress of the second volume of «Archeology». So the published correspondence covers the veil in the relations and the dialog between the Teacher and his disciple.
