Abstract

In September 2011, the Russian and Japanese expedition conducted a surface survey to find Paleolithic sites in Tuva Republic, Russian Federation. Paleolithic archaeological materials were collected in four different areas. Separate stone artifacts have on their surfaces visible traces of eolian processing - corrasion. By location of the sites, technological and morphological features of collected lithics, the artifacts have a possibility to belong to lower and middle Paleolithic.
