Geography

Coordinate: 45.573277° N, 29.451138° E
Basis of coordinate: estimated from map
Geography comments: There are two places called Mirnoe in this area, and I'm pretty sure this paper got it wrong. They list 46˚28'N 30˚22'E, but the previous papers referring to the site have the other location, so I've put that one in as the official location.

I think it the dates are uncalibrated (table says 14C BP).

Calculated dates: 8280 ± 45, 8350 ± 45, 8385 ± 45, and 8475 ± 45.
Climate and habitat
Lithology: peat
Taphonomic context: human accumulation, tools
Archaeology: buildings, hearths, stone tools, other artifacts
Habitat comments: "The site sequence was described as follows70
according to the profiles of the trenches opened in
1969–1976: 1) topsoil, composed of two horizons: a) turf, b) loamy layer with Chalcolithic finds); 2) dusty, peaty loam; 3) light brownish loam, with carbonate inclusions (‘‘buried soil’’?); 4) yellowish, sandy loam, containing the cultural layer, radiocarbon-dated to 7200 % 80 uncal BP (Le-1647) from bone; 5) heavy, dense, light brown loam with carbonate inclusions.
The Mesolithic layer was found between the Late Pleistocene loam deposit (5), and the ‘‘buried soil’’ that formed under mild, Atlantic climatic conditions (3). "
Methods
Life forms: carnivores, ungulates, other small mammals
Sampling methods: quarry
Sample size: 9800
Sampled by: Stanko
Years: 1969 - 1976
Sampling comments: "A representative sample of surface finds was collected in 1964,
thanks to which the site was attributed to the Late
Mesolithic, like those of Grebenyky and Gyrzheve.
During the opening of the first test-trench, a rich
cultural layer was discovered in situ at the depth of
0.9–1.1 m.66 From 1969 to 1976, Stanko carried
out an extensive programme of excavations"
