Abstract

The article analyzes fish-remains from Andronovo (Fedorovka) and Krotovo-Andronovo burials at Tartas-1, Baraba forest-steppe, Western Siberia. These remains were found in the surface structures above the graves, in the infill of graves, and at the bottom of graves near human remains. Species and age composition, fishing season, and number of individuals are estimated. Based on these findings, inferences are made regarding the transformation of burial rites of the Andronovo (Fedorovka) migrants from the south, mirroring a shift from the traditional meat diet to that based on fish. Ideological changes related to the adaptation to a new environment are discussed.
