Ceramic Complexes of Ust-Belaya: Systematization, Chronometry, Chronology
As a result of analysis of ceramic complexes of the multilayered site Ust-Belaya (Southern Angara region) on a basis of the morfo-technical signs we allocated 20 groups of different times. The study and comparative analysis with materials of the Baikal Siberia we distinguished the pottery on the 14 groups, its relative and absolute chronology is identified. Neolithic complexes of Khaita (~7500–5500 BP) and Ust-Belaya (~6600–4100 BP) pottery are most representative in a quantitative sense. Neolyhtic Posolskaya (~6900–4100 BP) and Net-impressed (~7500-5500 BP) pottery is presented by single fragments. The period of the Late Neolithic – Bronze Age is presented by Ribbed pottery(~4200–3600 BP) of different types. Several groups, including pottery of Tyshkine (Senogda) type (~3100–2100 BP) are defined as the early Iron Age and the Middle Ages.
