Thus, according to the different origin and authenticity we have few of Kiev appearance dates. In order of precedence: - 482 year (Popova and officialdom); - The beginning of the VI century (B. Rybakov); - 864/862/860 a year (PVL with the "correction" of the Great Soviet Encyclopedia); - First half of the X century ( "Kiev Letter"); - The middle of the X century ( "On the management of the empire"). With such a wealth of choice answer to the question about the foundation of Kiev time and it remains open, that willy-nilly forces us to seek the real date of occurrence of the capital of Kievan Rus to the archaeologists. It is unlikely that archeology can be attributed to the exact sciences, but in many cases dating accuracy achieved by attracting truly exact science, it is sufficient to, if not to establish absolute truth, then at least to separate the wheat from the chaff, to share the story and myths. Especially if a myth that the alleged story inscribed in any fiction that allegedly chronicle.
