Summary/Abstract: Some Swiderian sites occuring in the sediments dated to the Preboreal times were excavated at the basin of the Upper Volga lakes. Their relative chronology is based primarily on typological and palynological evidence. The available archaeological and chronological data give gounds to hypothesize the existence of contacts between the Early Mesolithic Swiderian and Butovo cultures. This may serve as an additional argument in favor of the view that the Butovo culture formed on a Gravettian basis.
