Summary/Abstract: In 1955, during the meeting in the National Museum in Warsaw between the Director of the Hermitage Museum Mikhail Artamonov and Deputy Director of the National Museum Kazimierz Michałowski, a proposal for joint Soviet-Polish excavations in Myrmekion was made. The relevant agreements between the Hermitage Museum and the National Museum in Warsaw (with the participation of the University of Warsaw and Leningrad University) were signed. In the summer of 1956, the first post-war expedition of Polish archaeologists focused on antiquity research began. Although the joint Polish-Soviet work lasted only for 3 campaigns, it allowed for field education in the field of antiquity excavations of young archaeological workers as well as students of the University of Warsaw from higher years of studies.
