ABSTRACT
Southern Siberia is a unique historical and cultural area of Russia. Since ancient times, it has been a center for the formation of many cultures and has served as a way for the migration of peoples from Central Asia to the West. "Traces" of these historical and ethno-geographical processes have remained till our days in the form of numerous ar-chaeological sites: complexes of stone burial mounds, complexes of burial memorial structures, stelae, deer stones, settlements, petroglyphs, etc. This broad variety of the archaeological sites is largely due to unique natural features of the territory. With the use of cartographic methods and GIS-technologies (MapInfo Professional, ArcGIS) the historical and landscape analysis of Southern Siberia in the Holocene was carried out. The purpose of the analysis was the revealing of the most reclaimed landscapes in dif-ferent historical periods from the Stone Age till the late Middle Ages. Additionally the rhythm of the Holocene climate change in the mountains was taken into account. To achieve the aim of the research the complex landscape-archaeological GIS was created.

Keywords: GIS-cartography of the archaeological sites, landscape, climate change, South Siberia
