Vinogradov N.B.(Chelyabinsk, Russian Federation)
The paper is aimed to discuss problems of synchronization and cultural affinity of Sintashta and Petrovka sites. The author denies a possibility of complete synchronization of Sintashta and Petrovka sites. He believes that comparing Sintashta and Petrovka sites, we try to compare incomparable phenomen: materialized remnants of the history of a community of the Sintashta clans of miners, metal-makers, blacksmiths, foundrymen, on the one hand, and sites of a community of the Alakul pastoral cultures, on the other.
Key words: the Bronze Age, Southern Trans-Urals, Northern Kazakhstan, Sintashta sites, Petrovka sites, clans of miners, metal-makers, blacksmiths, foundrymen, Alakul cultural-historical community sites.
