Distribution of records about Terekhtemyriv by years of publication
Publications are grouped by periods of 25 years. Therefore, under mark "1900" dispalyed the number of publications for 1876 – 1900 years
Considering the cumulative distribution of records (displayed orange line on the right axis), we see that before 1850 was introduced into scientific circulation only 33 records or 19% of the total. Historians who worked at the time, could not give the true history of Terekhtemyriv by objective reason – they did not dispose the source base.
The situation has changed dramatically over the next 75 years – the golden age of Ukrainian historical science. As of 1925 was introduced into scientific circulation 144 records, or 85% of the total. Therefore we can say that at the end of this period, the objective conditions for writing scientific history of Terekhtemyriv – representative source base – was created.
The next 75 years (put simply, 1926 – 2000, taking into account the adopted our grouping with a period of 25 years!) were a time of complete disappearance of history as a science and domination of "Marxist- Leninist" mythography. Naturally, it was gone for a history of Terekhtemyriv: source base enriched up to 9 records. No significant articles on the topic at this time did appear.
At the time of independence, particularly in the 1997 – 2012 years, the source base enriched by 17 records and reached 100%. At the time was published valuable articles by Valery Lastovsky on Terekhtemyriv history in the 18th century and by Roma Zymovets on stone crosses in the region (in particular, the cross of 1652 in Terekhtemyriv). Careful archaeological exploration by Valentina Petrashenko and Vitaly Kozyuba allowed to make a detailed archaeological map of the region [Petrashenko V. A., Kozyuba V.K. Coast of Kaniv Reservoir: catalog archaeological sites. – K.: 1999].
