The ending of the Sartanian severe floods by the beginning of Holocene period fostered the accumulation of subaerial deposits in the levels of the Yenisei Valley located at different heights and their population by the human groups. The sites of the Early Holocene in the vicinity of the villages of Kazantsevo (Shushensky District) and Shalabolino (Kuragino District) are particularly interesting in this context. Kazantsevo I is characterized by stable microinventory which indicates the possible presence of the Mesolithic in the South-Minusinsk Depression, while the materials collected during the archaeological survey in 1988-1990 testify to the presence of the Paleolithic horizon.
