Abstract

The article is devoted to some current problems in the study of Tagar culture dwellings of the Early Iron Age in the South of Siberia. A brief analysis of the history of research of this subject and a review of some new materials indicates the need for further improvement of the existing classification of Tagar settlements and dwellings. Some results from fieldwork on sites in the Uybat river valley and on the Boyary ridge are presented. Our conclusion, that the range of dwellings encountered across the Minusinsk Basin during the Early Iron Age is not well represented in the literature or fully understood. Based an analysis of available materials, several working hypotheses are presented about their chronological correlation and function, about the architecture of the dwellings and correlations with the architecture of barrows, about connections with house-building traditions of the Bronze age and the traditions of neighbouring regions. These hypotheses, though not always conclusive, give a clear mandate for further research and define its direction.
