Summary/Abstract: The paper presents the results of the data analysis related to arrowheads from the High Middle Ages found in the Lower Angara region. Arrowheads made of iron or, sometimes, horn were classified into 25 types, with bigger and flatter objects being prevalent. Other types include those widely spread in Eurasian Steppe during the Mongol and Pre-Mongol time (flat rhombic, oval- winged arrowheads, cutaways). Several types of the arrowheads from the Lower Angara region are similar to those found in the Taiga Zone of the Western Siberia (bifurcate, cutaways in the form of a shovel, chisel and tetrahedral objects, warheads). Archers from the Lower Angara region used arrowheads with tenons, large armor-piercing objects and arrowheads with decor. The arrowheads represent taiga forms and steppe types. All the objects were used by the same community and belong to Lesosibirsk archaeological culture of the High Middle Ages.
