Chronology and origin of źthe Alakul culture╗ in the Trans-Urals. Reflections on the Stanislav A. Grigoriev concept
Vinogradov N.B. (Chelyabinsk, Russian Federation)
The paper is devoted to criticism of the concept of Alakul culture origin and history proposed by Stanislav Grigoriev. The author casts doubt on Stanislav Grigoriev opinion about the dating Alakul sites in the Trans-Urals within two separate time periods and about a direct genetic link of Alakul population and inhabitants of Sintashta sites.
Key words: the forest-steppe Trans-Urals, the Late Bronze age, the Alakul culture, the Sintashta sites, the Petrovka sites.
