Abstract

This article considers problems of stratigraphy at the Buret` geoarchaeological site, widely known as the world-famous «Buret` Paleolithic site on the Angara river». We provide a description of the multilayer structure of an ancient alluvial cone and delineate several levels of embedding of paleotechnological (archaeological) sediments. Unique data concerning the age of the ancient culture are also presented.
