Sarkel's fortress had 4 towers and 2 gates, and a citadel was located in its south-eastern section.
The houses in Sarkel originally had an open hearth in the center, but by the 10th century many of the houses had more advanced stoves and they were located in a corner rather than in the center.

Sarkel, now under the waters of the Cimlyanskiy reservoir, was built some 15 km east of the right-bank "Cimlyansk" citadel.
The excavations revealed that the Bulgars were main inhabitants of Sarkel during the Khazar period, the drawings, signs and the inscriptions in Mayak and Sarkel are very close, they also have counterparts in the quadras and bricks with the first Bulgarian capital of Pliska.
Artamonov is very convincing in saying that Sarkel, built after the destruction of the white right-bank "Cimlyansk" citadel, which was probably called Sarkel, on the other bank of the river, took the name of the predecessor.

The city of Poltava, for instance, is located on the Vorskla River in eastern Ukraine.
Sarkel was definitely located on the Don River in what is now southern Russia.
I fixed this by removing the erroneous sentence about Poltava - what would be helpful would be the name of the current province/district where Sarkel resided.

 The Decline of the Khazar Empire
About the time when Sarkel was built by joint Byzantine-Khazar efforts in anticipation of attack by the eastern Vikings, their western branch had already penetrated all the major waterways of Europe and conquered half of Ireland.
For a century and a half after the fortress of Sarkel was built, trade agreements and the exchange of embassies with the Rus alternated with savage wars.
Sarkel was built just in time; it enabled them to control the movements of the Rus flotillas along the lower reaches of the Don and the Don-Volga portage (the "Khazarian Way").

These features are characteristic for almost all necropolises in the region, where the western orientation, the general scarcity of the burial objects and the brachiochranic anthropological type predominate.
There are some deviations in the way of burial, for example, in several graves from the pit necropolis at Sarkel, and in one burial in the catacomb necropolis at Dmitrievka the pit is circular in shape.
And contrary to the predominant western orientation of the common pit burials, these with niches are south-north oriented (the head points to the south).

Proto-Bulgarian presence was also attested in Sarkel, the principal Khazar stronghold in the area.
Artamonov is very convincing in saying that Sarkel, built after the destruction of the white fortress (Righ-bank Cimljanskoe, which was probably called 'White town, White fortress') on the other bank of the river, took the name of the opponent.
The numerous runes and symbolic signs on the bricks of Sarkel are very important having in mind the scarcity of such material in Right-bank Cimljanskoe.

The Khazar fortress of Sarkel, constructed with Byzantine aid around 830, may have been constructed as a defense against Rus incursions, as well as attacks by nomadic people such as the Pechenegs.
In the 10th century the empire began to decline due to the attacks of both Vikings from Kievan Rus and various Turkic tribes.
The Khazar fortresses of Sarkel and Tamatarkha fell to the Rus in 965, with the capital city of Atil following circa 967 or 969.

There have been few such since the illustrious Ras Tarkhan--but by the staff of Avram, perhaps one day you’ll be among them.” He inclined his head, as a gentleman to a lady, and his lip twitched in a smile.

 Khazaria (586-1083 AD) - DBA 93
(See Koestler, page 27.) Later in their history, in the early 9th century, the Khazars employed Byzantine engineers to build a major brick fortress on the lower Don River, at a site that became known as Sarkel (a Turkish word meaning "White Fortress").
Architecturally, Sarkel was a combination of Turko-Iranian and Byzantine technological characteristics.
The advance of the Arab Conquest forced the Khazars to abandon Derbent (661), but around 685 the Khazars counterattacked south of the Caucacus, seizing large portions of Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan.
