Abstract

In the first part of the article the natural conditions in which scythian time sites are spread in Seym river basin and the geological structure of the Seym basin are described. Reconstruction of the climatic conditions of the Scythian time in the region, based on modern indicators, is attempted. In the second part of the paper the sequence in which the database of monuments was gathered, and methods used in its analysis are described. All the sites are divided into 6 categories according to their type and cultural affiliation. Around each a buffer of 5 km radius is created, adjacent sites, which included in one category were divided by Thiessen polygons. An analysis of topography inside the buffer is made as well. The data were presented in form of graphs which indicated the number of cells recorded for each height. According to the predominance of a particular type of topography, the sites were divided into three types which are further compared among themselves. Based on the obtained data the conclusions about the type of economy at the sites and about the extencion of the sites which were more suitable to a certain type of economy have been made.
