stand Malta had been found in 1928 by the known Irkutsk archaeologist M. Gerasimov. It had
been researched for three ten years. It is located on high terrace of the river White in
7-8 kms far from Buret. Malta is the most known upper-palaeolithic monument in Siberia. It
existed approximately 23000 years ago. There was found the rests of dwellings here looked
as semihug-out with roundish (a diameter 3,5-4 ì) and four-coal (sizes 6,5-8*4 ì, one
dwelling 14*5-6 ì) forms, laid round on outline by plates of a linestone and a bones of a
mammoth (tusks, tubulars, blades, skulls), rhinoceros, northern deers.
The plan of the round dwelling from the stand Malta.
| In the basis of some dwellings
there was a ground wall up to 0.7 ì in height, there were plates on which surface, and
inside it there were congestions of horns of a northern deer and bones of mammoths. Except
semihug-out in Malta the traces of roundish dwellings are found. The excavation of Malta
are lasting just now. As show the last data of archaeologists, Malta is the multilayer
monument. The future excavation, probably, will allow to change the idea about the Malta
dwellings and other finds.
