ABSTRACT

Humid and arid climatic cycles during Sub-Atlantic time in the forest-steppe area of the East European Plain were studied based on soils buried under archaeological sites of different time. The shift of the boundary between steppe and forest patches is recorded in the shift of the studied soils: Luvic Greyzemic Fhaeozems of the forest patches and Luvic Chernozems under steppe environment. The complex research is based on archaeological investigation, assemblages of morphological (marco-, meso- and micromorphological), microbiomorphic (pollen, phytoliths) and analytical features. Climatic rhythms in the Sub-Atlantic period entailed the transformation of the whole complex of landscape parameters, including soil features: development of Agric horizon, greyzemic features, characteristics of humus and carbonate profiles, C/N ratio, soil microbiomorphic complex, etc. A group of stable and dynamic indicators of climatic shifts was established by ranking soil features in their degree of transformation in various environmental conditions.

Keywords: buried soils, archaeological sites, Holocene, soil chronosequence, East-European Plain.
