its research was accounted for by the fact that suffi ciently rich and varied writt en heritage of the Tajik people could not provide a comprehensive conception of historical processes, especially in the ancient period, including Stone and Bronze Ages, early Middle Ages. To M. Dyakonov’s thinking, there were quite a few essential gaps in the ancient and medieval history of Tajikistan that cannot be fi lled on the basis of writt en sources only, especially as these sources are informatively scant, bear no systematic nature and scatt ered about in tens of works in diff erent languages. Most writt en sources on the history of Tajikistan are known in the science, so researchers are mainly engaged in interpreting them from diff erent points of view. Hence, it is archaeological excavations only to provide new materials.2

Sett lements of miners that sprang up in the past in places of minerals extraction were fre-quently located far from agricultural and craft centers. Deliveries of necessary foodstuff s and handicraft wares depended not only on natural conditions where miners and their families sett led down but to a greater degree on value of a mineral. Evidence of this has clearly been apparent in the town of miners’ Bazardara which was built in a diffi - cult of access region of Eastern Pamirs (Murgab district of Gorno-Badakhshan autonomous region), at a height of 3905 m above sea level. Th e climate of Eastern Pamirs is severe. Th is is an arid zone. Th e area around the lake Bulun-kul is reputed to be a pole of cold. Winter temperatures range between – 550 and lower. Summer months are characterized by early frosts. No farming is possible; catt le-breeding is available only.

Acad. Nikolay Ivanovitch Veselovskiy (12.11.1842 – 12.04.1918) made a great contribution to the study of archaeology and medieval culture of Central Asia. A greater portion of his considerable and multiform scientifi c and literary heritage remains unpublished. As viewed by the well-know researcher of the history of Russian Oriental studies and archaeology of Central Asia B.V.Lunin, “works by N.I. Veselovskiy added a vivid page to the study of Central Asia antiquities”. Note that a Lunin’s monograph “Central Asia in the Scientifi c Heritage of Home Oriental Studies” deals entirely with the scientifi c activity of N.I. Veselovskiy who is ranked with Grigoriyev V.V. and Bartold V.V. In this triad, N.I. Veselovskiy comes out as disciple of the former and teacher of the latt er. It was no mere coincidence that Bartold devoted a comprehensive obituary notice to his teacher. Deserving consideration is the fact that Veselovskiy was editor and initiator of the fi rst edition of works by Ch.Ch. Valikhanov published in St.- Petersburg in 1904.
