Abstract

The new results of AMS 14C dating of the earliest pottery from the Russian Far East, Osipovka, Gromatukha and Novopetrovka cultural complexes (Amur River basin), are presented. Pottery temper (represented by sedge grass) was chosen for dating; pottery-associated charcoal was also dated. The earliest pottery from the Amur River basin nowadays may be dated to ca. 13000 BP (ca. 16000 cal BP), and this is one of the oldest potteries in East Asia, and in Old World in general.
