Chernoe More, 1700-1860 Diderot's Encyclope'die, the Enlightenment's great
compendium of human knowledge, contains a brief entry on the Black Sea. The “
Pont-Euxin” is described as lying “between Little Tartary and Circassia to the
north, Georgia to the east, Anatolia to the south, and European Turkey to the west
.” The author of the entry adds helpfully that it is not a pont in the sense that an
empty-headed French courtier might understand it—that is, not a “bridge”—but
rather “an ...

The squadron of Pustoshkin remained on the Anapa raid during the whole week,
loading the ships with the spoils of war and repulsing the daily Circassian attacks
. Having finally finished its mission, the squadron raised its masts and left. Taking
advantage of this, and of the return of Gangebelov's unit, the Turkish Pasha
returned to Anapa, and the Circassians resumed attacking the Black Sea Cordon
Line. In 1809, Russia resumed her war against Turkey. Again, the commander in

By agreement between Russia and the neighboring Ottoman Empire, the
Circassians were to be resettled in Ottoman territory. Many drowned during the
passage across the Black Sea and many others starved. Of those who survived,
most were re- settled in areas that are today parts of Turkey, Syria, Jordan, and
Israel. Estimates of those ex- pelled vary widely, from conservative figures of
600,000 up to 1.5-2 million. At least half a million or so were resettled in Turkey,
70,000 in Syria, ...

heard. In Turkey, Ubykh speakers turned to Turkish and circassian (in the latter
