We studied the cross-sections of three sites in Orkhon valley (central Mongolia), containg the cultural sequences from the Final Middle Paleolithic to Late Upper Paleolithic. Here we present first results on paleoclimatic conditions, that might impacted on human occupation and depopulationsContinue reading “New article on climatic condition in Middle Paleolithic of Mongolia is out”

Irina Vishnevskaya worked on pretreatment and measurments for Sr isotopic composition

This April Irina spent in the “Geoanalyst” geochemical lab in Ekaterinburg. She worked on pretreatrment and measurments of the samples from Altai and Mongolia for 87Sr/86Sr ratio. She will present first results attending online Goldshmidt2021, July 4-9 in Lyon, and DIG2021, May 17-21 in Faro.

Arina Khatsenovich, Irina Vishnevskaya and Evgeny Mikheev gave a talk at the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography SB RAS

They presented the first results on their study of Sr isotopic composition: the first stage of 87Sr/86Sr ratio mapping in Altai and Mongolia and results on study of the faunal samples from Orkhon-1 and Moiltyn am. 87Sr/86Sr ratio for bone samples, compared to results that we’ve got for sediments from site profiles, indicates that someContinue reading “Arina Khatsenovich, Irina Vishnevskaya and Evgeny Mikheev gave a talk at the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography SB RAS”
