This chapter examines the influence of Russian historian Boris Alexandrovich Rybakov on Soviet archaeology. It first provides an overview of Rybakov's early life before turning to his career, including his leadership at the Institute for the History of Material Culture and his tenure at the State Historical Museum. It then considers Rybakov's efforts to uphold the originality and high standard of early Russian culture and his rise as leader of Slavic-Russian archaeology in the mid-1950s, along with his foray into cognate disciplines such as epic and mythology. Finally, the chapter discusses Rybakov's major works, including his research on the origin of the Slavs, the Scythian tribes, and the beginning of urban life in Kiev.

Keywords:   epic, mythology, Boris Alexandrovich Rybakov, Soviet archaeology, Russian culture, Slavs, Scythian tribes, urban life, Kiev
