an Upper Paleolithic settlement in Irkutsk Oblast, RSFSR, on the right bank of the Angara River, at the mouth of the Sukhaia Valley. It was discovered and studied by A. P. Okladnikov in 1936, 1937, and 1939. In addition to Paleolithic stone and bone artifacts, he found bones of the rhinoceros, mammoth, reindeer, bison, and other Ice Age animals. Ruins of four dwellings have been excavated, one of which was 1 m underground; the others were above ground. The main building materials for dwellings were mammoth bones, rhinoceros skulls, and reindeer antlers. A statuette of a bird and five figurines of women have been found, as well as an interesting statuette of a woman clothed in a fur arctic suit styled like an overall with a hood.
