You’re welcome to dip your toes in the Paleolithic
To better understand the complexities of Pleistocene cultural processes in eastern Eurasia, we study the Paleolithic archaeology of the Russian Altai region, Mongolia, North China, Xinjiang, Qinghai, and ethnic Tibet…the broad region referred to by geographers as Central and Inner Asia.
Situated on the eastern periphery of Central Asia, Mongolia was an important pathway for the migration of ancient human populations from the west to the east (and/or vice versa). Possible scenarios for the dispersal of ancient human populations in Mongolia are much more complicated than initially supposed due to the limited number of corridors penetrating natural barriers like the mountains of southern Siberia in the north and the arid mountain systems of the Mongolian and Gobi Altai ranges in the south.
Here you will find resources about the Paleolithic of Mongolia, including the history of archaeological investigations there, recent finds, links to publications in peer-reviewed journals, and descriptions of current projects.

Our team visited several Paleolithic sites in Altai Mountains this July. We had coordinates of the sites that have been investigated in 1980-1990th – Maloyalomanskaya cave and Kara-Tenesh. Of course, these coordinates were wrong. Local people were very kind and helped us to find the cave. Site is in the good condition. One of theContinue reading “Archaeological survey in Altai Mountains”
Down Ancient Trails is the international archaeological forum, organized by Sharma Center for Heritage Education, India and supported by Leakey Foundation. It is the online platform for specialists in archaeological sciences and anthropology to share their research. A number of headliners in archaeology gave the talks about different subjects that they study. Shanti Pappu, theContinue reading “Arina Khatsenovich gave a talk for Down Ancient Trails”
