In May 2020, the archaeological rescue work was conducted in the territory of Omsk military hospital (4, Gusarova st.) on detected objects of cultural heritage “Settlement Omsk. Hospital-1” and “Omsk Subsoil Burial Ground. Hospital-2 (city cemetery of the final third of the 18th to early 19th centuries). The objects became at risk of destruction because of the construction of a multifunctional medical center. In the result of fieldwork, the location and boundaries of the city cemetery of the final third of the 18th to early 19th centuries. The existence of the cemetery was previously known only from archival data. According to the data, the found cemetery replaced the Kadyshevskoye city cemetery and functioned for a short period, about one or two decades. Subsequently it was closed as the Kadyshevskoye city cemetery and the burials were organized at the Butyrskoye cemetery in Omsk. The short period of the cemetery work is proved by archaeological findings. It was possible to find out by the absence of several layers of burials in the cultural layer and also by the necropolis area. One burial site was carefully studied during the archaeological work. It was made according to the Orthodox burial tradition. The deceased person was buried on the back with the head oriented to the west. The coffin was wooden and the inventory was not found. Some other burial sites were detected near the studied site; they are preserved now. Moreover, the features of the settlement cultural layer (tentatively dating back to the late Bronze Age). The fragments of hand-made ceramics and ceramic melting pot prove that the settlement was situated in the terrace cape of the Om River in the eastern part of the site. The documentation for state protection of the archaeological site was prepared.
