Abstract

The paper is devoted to the mapping of the Late and Final Bronze Age settlements that are situated in the basin of the river Siverskiy Donets and on the Donets Ridge. On the basis of analyses more than 800 Late Bronze Age settlements the horizon of the late stage Berezhnovka-Maevka Srubnaya culture and post-Srubnaya settlements horizon were identified.

The Late Bronze age settlements are evenly spread over the territory of the basin of the river Siverskiy Donets and on the Donets Ridge. The Final Bronze age localities are the same to the previous stage. On the contrary, the Bondarikhinskaya culture settlement’s location differs from the post- Srubnaya sites. All of them are located on the left bank of the river Siverskiy Donets and none of them are situated on the right bank. The location of settlements indicates a high population density in the basin of the river Siverskiy Donets and on the Donets Ridge during the Bronze age from the first stage of Berezhnovka-Maevka Srubnaya culture and to the end of the Bronze Age.
