{short description of image}  

Another detail from a British map. Here we see the entire Russian defense line. We have photos from bastion 1 (at the point above the Carenage ravine and main harbor - Bastion 2 (little Redan) Malakov (Kornilov tower) - Bastion 3 (Redan) and Flagstaff Bastion. But the defense line from Flagstaff to Quarantine is covered with city buildings now. The "Genoese Fort" that the British thought medieval is actually the largely covered over ruin of ancient Chersonese - the Greek (and Byzantine) colony. We have extensive photography and description of Chernonese.
