a settlement dating from the Bronze Age (beginning of the second and end of the first millennia B.C.), located near the city of Chust, Namangan Oblast, Uzbek SSR. Excavations by V. I. Sprishevskii and others, conducted between 1950 and 1961, revealed part of a defensive system, the remains of dwellings, refuse pits, and burials. Characteristic finds included painted pottery, with black geometric designs on a red background, as well as objects made of bronze, stone, or wood and molds for the casting of weapons.
