In 2020, in the territory of the Vengerovsky district of the Novosibirsk region, exploration work along the Om and Tartas Rivers and on Lake Kakul, as well as monitoring of the state of the Stary Tartas-1 site were carried out. Four new sites have been identified, three of which are settlements and one is a single mound. The Tartas-4 site is confined to the Tartas River and is a settlement of the late Middle Ages. The multi-layered settlement Tartas-5 is located on the first terrace above flood plain of the Tartas River. Two cultural layers are distinguished on it: the first belongs to the Late Bronze Age, while the other to the Andronovo (Fedorovo) culture. Single mound Kakul-1 is located on the Lake Kakul terrace. The Kakul-2 site is also located on Lake Kakul and is a settlement of the early Iron Age (Sargat culture). Fragments of ceramics of the comb-pit community of the early metal epoch, Krotovo culture, and from the period of the development of Siberia by the Russians were found at the archaeological site of Stary Tartas-1. This demonstrates the previously stated assumption that the site is a multilayered settlement that existed during the Early-Advanced Bronze Age (the 4th millennium to the 13th century BC). Findings of ceramics of the “Russian period” are associated with the functioning of the Ust-Tartas outpost. The previous discoveries of the bronze celts of the Seimin-Turbin type and horn plates left from the coat of mail at the site, which are often found in funeral complexes, allow suggesting that a subsoil burial ground of the Early-Advanced Bronze period exists in the Stary Tartas-1 site in addition to the multi-layered settlement.
