The paper describes archaeological studies carried out at the ancient settlement of Uliarba (locus 3). The site is located on the isthmus of Antukhai Cape (Uliarba locality) on the northwestern coast of the Mukhor Bay of the Maloe More part of Lake Baikal. In the course of the research, two cultural layers containing chronologically homogenous complexes have been identified. A representative collection of artifacts has been collected. The typological analysis of pottery, comparisons with materials from key multilayered settlements and burials on the Baikal coast, as well as radiocarbon definitions, suggest the following preliminary dating of the identified complexes. The materials of cultural layer 0 (with pottery decorated with punched nodes) date back to the Early Bronze Age (4597-3726 cal BP). The complex of cultural layer I (with dot-combed pottery) dates to the Late Neolithic (in the range of 5571-4597 cal BP).
