archaeological expertise, caal technical specialist 2019-2022

Sergei’s role as a technical specialist on the CAAL project is inspired by his quest for the unknown and an interest in archaeology stemming from his participation on the expedition to explore the medieval settlement of Kastek. As a history student at Kazakh National Pedagogical University, he is well acquainted with the Middle Ages which might explain why he is fond of the motto: Fiat iustitia, et pereat mundus ‘let justice be done, though the world perish’. While he enjoys the quiet and calm landscape of Charyn Canyon, he also loves literature – including the archives he is currently spending so much time with.
