The article focuses on the reconstruction of the layout of Kara-Tobe hillfort’s central part (North-Western Crimea). “Citadel” existed there during the heyday of the Late Scythian settlement (mid 1st century BC — the 1st quarter of the 1st century AD). The relatively short chronological period counts approximately ten rearrangements, both within individual buildings or houses, and within the site. Edward Harris’s method made it possible to synchronize the rearrangement and distinguish four building horizons of different duration. It was possible to date some of them. Comparing observations of the «citadel» and houses layouts with neighboring and distant sites complemented our understanding of the Late Scythian housebuilding. It also provided a clue to the social structure of their society.

Keywords: the North-Western Crimea, Late Scythians, architecture, Harris matrix, household archaeology
