The sites of the Atasu Basin were opened in the second half of the 1940s by A.H. Margulan. At present new studies are being conducted in the region.

Two cultural and chronological horizons have been distinguished on the Atasu and Myrzhyk settlements – from Andronovo time and the Late Bronze Age — which are reflected in the presented materials.

Formal typological, formal statistical and technical-technological analysis of ceramics have been held. The research has been made of the main elements of the ornament, the methods of their application.
