Paleolithic workshops provide data on the technology of stone processing with full cycles of production of stone products and blanks. Today, only a few such sites have been identified in Siberia. One of the brightest representatives is the A.P. Okladnikov workshop in Eastern Transbaikalia on Titovskaya Sopka (near Chita), which is also a paleovolcano. The uniqueness of the landscape, the favorable natural landscape location near the river valley and the presence of rich deposits of isotropic raw materials have long attracted primitive people here. The study of the archaeological site was carried out during 1959—1967. In total, 4 excavations were laid: No. 1—1959 (A.P. Okladnikov), No. 2—1961 (V.E. Larichev, A.P. Okladnikov), No. 3—1962 (S.N. Astakhov), No. 4—1967 (I.I. Kirillov). After more than 50 years, the work was resumed. At the present stage, there are no publications that reveal the features of archaeological material, the geological structure of the section, and other information. This work is the first stage of the study of the A.P. Okladnikov workshop. Based on aerial photography, an orthophotomap was created using an unmanned aerial vehicle. This made it possible to correlate and link excavations of the past years on the ground, which will later serve as a basis for fixing and studying archaeological material that has not yet been introduced into scientific circulation, reconstructing natural conditions and methods of adaptation of ancient people, as well as a planigraphic analysis of the A.P. Okladnikov workshop.
