The subject of this article is the geometric documentation of more than 500 caves cut into the soft rock of the plateau of Eski-Kermen, a medieval settlement on the highlands of the south-western Crimea. The types of caves and carved surface areas vary from very simple to extensive ones. A large number of traces and objects were recorded as basis for the understanding of the use of the caves, which were modified throughout the centuries until recent times. The aim of our sub-project is to develop a comprehensive system of effective geometric and archaeological documentation for further studies of cave settlements.
