Gattsuk, A. A.

Another of the founding members of the IMAO, Gattsuk, who identified as Little Russian rather than Ukrainian, taught at the Richelieu Lyceum, and then developed his interest in archeology. He demonstrated particular interest in distinguishing racial/ethnic parameters of theremains in the kurgans he excavated. A contentious amateur, he enjoyed participating in the debates that arose at the congresses, even when he was not well versed in the scientific details.
