This article presents new evidence from excavations in the Moskva river valley, where Early Bronze Age sites have been found under alluvial sediments on the flood plain. The finds were identified to the Corded Ware, Fatyanovo and Abashevo cultures. Radiocarbon dates and stratigraphy demonstrate that these sites developed from the middle to the end of the 3rd millennium BC. Analysis of pollen identified ancient fields and provided a general picture of the proportion of wild and culture landscapes
