With the ornament variants, nowadays its area includes territories from the Cis-Baikal to the Kuznetsk Altau.

Based on the materials of the Sergushkin-1 point «A» site, one of the main object speaking of this cultural phenomena, the technical morphological peculiarities and different variants of ornaments of the Ust’-Belaia pottery are examined. The description of the stone and bone industry related to the pottery complex is given.
