The Sarminskii Mys burial ground is one of the main Late Neolithic necropolises, investigated in the Baikal region (Maloe More region of Lake Baikal). According to the peculiarities of the funeral rite, the necropolis was attributed to the Serovo cultural-chronological group and is dated to the range of4.6-4.3 thousand years BP. Massive AMS-dating of burial complexes and new approaches to their interpretation (considering the water reservoir effect) made it possible to identify 3 Early Neolithic burial sites (Kurma funeral practice) in the group of Serovo burials. The conducted investigations made it possible to identify two chronological ranges of the Sarminskii Mys usage as the burial ground during the Neolithic: in the Late Neolithic (group of Serovo burials) - within 5298/5447-4830/4569 cal. BP and in the Early Neolithic (the Kurma group) - 7931-7439 cal. BP.
