Country: Russia
State: Irkutsk

Coordinate: 52° 32' 35" N, 106° 4' 50" E
Basis of coordinate: estimated from map
Climate and habitat
Lithology: not described
Taphonomic context: human accumulation, tools
Habitat comments: "Five primary cultural deposits or layers (Fig. 2) were identified (numbered IeV), and layers II and IV were subdivided into sub-layers (II-1, II-2, etc.);all produced artefacts and contained features such as simple hearths. Layers I and II were contiguous at the top of the profile; the sub-layers of layer II also were contiguous. Layer II was in most places separated from III by a stratum containing no artefacts or faunal remains..."

Sandy sediment and cobbles/boulders mentioned for nearby layers but layer II is not described.
Life forms: carnivores, ungulates, other small mammals, fishes
Sampling methods: quarry
Sample size: 486
Sampled by: N. A. Savel'ev
Years: 2006-2008
Sampling comments: "Excavated sediments were sieved over 7 mm mesh screens and all cultural materials had their positions recorded in three dimensions when found in situ. "
"The first excavations at Bugul'deika II were conducted by V. V. Altukhov between 1999 and 2004, but remain unpublished. Reported here are materials from the 2006-8 excavations, directed by N.A. Savel'ev, which consist of a 40 m2 trench spanning 10 m east-west, and 3-5 m north-south; the eastern shorter edge of the trench was at the edge of the bank above the shore, and the opposite end inland"
