Summary/Abstract: In the early 13th century, the territory of Yenisei Siberia was gradually conquered and subjugated by the Mongol Empire, the process starting from the southern regions. The archaeological evidence of the process is fragmentary. In the territory of Tuva, Mongolian cities, settlements, burials and Buddhist monuments are known, which indicate its direct settling by the Mongols. In the Minusinsk-Khakassia depression and the Krasnoyarsk forest-steppe, individual Mongolian items are known by separate burials and by casual collecting. The population of the southern taiga of the Yenisei Siberia region had also been incorporated in the structure of the Mongol Empire, which is demonstrated by the finds of ceremonial hunting belt sets, Chinese beads and other imported items.
