Summary/Abstract: The article characterizes transgressive-regressive sea level changes in the Black Sea – Azov Sea basin in connection with the dynamics of spatial distribution and density of sites and main cultural-historical processes that took place in the Upper Palaeolithic – Eneolithic in the region. In addition, it provides a critical assessment of the popular theory of catastrophic “Noah’s Deluge on the Black Sea” by V. Rein and V. Pitman, as well as a number of archaeological migration concepts (L.L. Zaliznyak, V.A. Dergaciov etc.), based on the sea level change.
