The paper presents the data of the recent studies of the Malyshevo pottery (developed complex). The X-ray phase analysis of a set of fragments from the collections of the southwestern group of sites: Gasya, Gosyan, Petropavlovka-Ostrov, Innokentievka, Voznesenskoe, was carried out. Crystalline components (quarts, feldspars, micaceous minerals) in the mineral composition of raw clay and fabric has been identified; dynamics of pottery manufacturing has been deduced at the sites ofPetropavlovka-Ostrov, Innokentievka (the early stage), Gasya, Gosyan (the middle stage) and Voznesenskoe (the late stage). The early and middle stages of Malyshevo pottery tradition are characterized by selection of the best suitable raw material and fabric composition. The late stage indicates the optimal raw clay and fabric composition. The most typical fabric composition was clay, sand and rock fragments.
