Suzgun Culture

 

a Bronze-age archaeological culture that existed in the forest zone of Western Siberia during the second half of the second millennium B.C. Little studied, the culture was named for a sacrificial site at Suzgun, near Tobol’sk. It is characterized by large flat-bottomed vessels with continuous ornamentation divided into horizontal sections. The remains of the Suzgun culture are found mainly in the Tobol’sk area near the Irtysh River; however, pottery typical of the Suzgun culture has also been found near the Ob’ River as far north as Taz Bay.
