14C Chronology of Archaeological Sites in European Russia and Changes in Environmental Processes: A Database Investigation

  • Ganna I. Zaitseva (a1), Valentin A. Dergachev (a2), Vladimir L. Timofeev (a1) and Anatoly A. Sementsov (a1)

Abstract

A large number of 14C dates for archaeological sites in European Russia have been entered into a new database. The database includes >1500 dates for ca. 500 archaeological sites. Because European Russia is a very large area, the database includes subdivisions of territories and regions. We analyzed our 14C dates according to archaeological periods (Paleolithic through Medieval period) and made a comparison with environmental (climatic) parameters. Our database for archaeological sites and monuments offers new possibilities for correlation between the development of ancient cultures and natural-climatic processes.
