The article presents the results of the study of the Early Iron Age and medieval ceramics from Tomsk Ob Region within the framework of the historical and cultural approach according to the method of A.А. Bobrinsky. The main task is to identify the specifics of cultural traditions in the raw material selection, preparation of pottery paste, local and non-local traditions. It was established that in the Iron Age, the Tomsk Ob potters made ceramics from qualitatively different raw materials: ferruginous and non-iron clays. On all the studied monuments, gruss was the main mineral admixture, which was artificially introduced into pottery paste. An insignificant mixture of skills in the use of mineral admixtures was noted, which is associated with contacts with the new population. The widespread use of un-iron clay is a feature of ceramic complexes from Tomsk Ob Region.
