One of the main priorities of modern archaeology is not just a study of specific sites, but the study of them in the context of the natural and historical landscape. To solve this problem it is very convenient to use geoinformational systems (GIS) technologies which are understood as integration of actual electronic databases (text, digital, etc.) and geoimages. We have a great number of sources regarding the defense of the Bosporian Kingdom in the Roman time. These include epigraphy, antique literary heritage and archeological data. The latter is the main source of the research. In this work spatial analysis modules from the following programs of Arc Map 8.3 were used: Spatial Analyst, 3-D Analyst, Geostatistical Analyst.
