Abstract

The work is done in the form of messages and continues a series of publications, which aim is to introduce to the scientific use, to analyze and to systematize the new remains from the excavations of recent years in the North Angara region. We describe the finds of the Neolithic age, found in the result of the rescue operations on a multilayer site the Village Martynova. There are the stone tools, including a variety of guns and debitage, the bone artifacts, among them are the presser, the flint glazer and the product of the cylindrical shape with the chute around in the middle of it. The pottery collection of the Neolithic horizon represents almost a homogeneous complex of the Ust-Belaya type. In total, there are 20 Ust-Belaya vessels decorated with a variety of the tools - the smooth stacks, the pectinated and oval stamps. The vessels with the impressions of the woven mesh on the outer surface present the particular interest (4 pc.). This fact indicates that the carriers of the Ust-Belaya pottery tradition, which predominantly made the smooth pottery, knew the technology of pressing through a grid. The finds of the vessels variously decorated, but identical in morfotechnological aspect, in a single layer confirm the impossibility of clear differentiation of this pottery on Kazachka type (early) and Ust-Belaya type (late).
