Abstract

The concept of the Kama Neolithic culture was proposed by Otto Bader, but lacked ra­diocarbon dates in the 20th century. Now, we have more than 50 radiocarbon dates that can be at­tributed to the Kama Neolithic culture. The results of radiocarbon analysis of organogenic materials of the Kama culture allow us to determine its chronological limits between the second quarter of the 6th and the beginning of 4th mill. cal BC. The early phase of the Kama culture is now dated between the second quarter of the 6th and the beginning of the 5th mill. cal BC, the middle phase is dated to the first half of the 5th mill. cal BC, and the late phase is dated between the second half of 5th and the beginning of 4th mill. cal BC.
