In May 2010, was officially established a branch of the Institute of Archaeology after named A.H. Margulan Committee of science, Ministry of Education and Science RK in Astana. I have a long time ago the idea of creating such a structure in Astana, this time it was supported by the Minister. In my plan, branch in Astana should to give a new impetus to the development of archeology at a time when the country is a real process of transition to fundamentally new forms of organization and funding of research activities, as well as contribute to the training of highly qualified specialists. I believe that the development of the fundamental areas of archeology, despite the emergence of various regional centers, institutes, with some universities and a large number of specialized commercial entities (LLC, NGOs, etc.), should remain the prerogative of research institutions (and their subsidiaries in different cities) with "academic" tradition of the organization of the scientific process.
At this stage of the activity branch will naturally seek to expand the field of research in the various regions of the country and accumulate documented to date archaeological sources for development on the basis of their theoretical and methodological problems in the study of ancient and medieval history of the country in accordance with the realities of our time and the needs of paradigm of nation-state and the public consciousness.
