The authors discuss characteristic features of the relief decoration ceramics collected from the Bolshie Kuchugury hillfort in the Lower Dnieper region. The ratio of groups of this ceramics tells about existence of close ties between Bolshie Kuchugury and towns in the South-Eastern Crimea and the Golden Horde centers in the Volga region. The main features of vessels are typical for the developed Golden Horde pottery. The low quality of turquoise glaze on Crimean vessels seems to reflect the process of learning a new type of decoration. Two groups of ceramics belong to one or several undetermined ceramic workshops practicing mixed traditions from the above indicated regions. Analogies to these industrial techniques and the marked style of relief decoration, the area of distribution of such finds suggest that they were possibly produced in one or several provincial centers in the western regions of the Golden Horde, which developed their industries based on a variety of traditions, though under doubtless impact of the Crimean pottery.

Keywords: Lower Dnieper region, Bolshie Kuchugury hillfort, Golden Horde sites, embossed ceramics, group, subgroup, molding composition, decoration
