The title of the workshop was The impact of the environment on Human Migration in Eurasia. More than 40 scientists from Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Poland, Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands, United Kingdom, Belgium, Finland, Lithuania and Latvia took part. The themes of the workshop focused on the origin, development, interactions, and migrations of prehistoric and ancient populations, specifically the Scythians, in Eurasia and their relationships with the environment of the time. The discussion of these questions necessitated the participation of specialists from a wide range of academic fields. Beyond any doubt, the environment played an important role in the life of ancient nomadic populations, forming the basis of their economies and influencing various aspects of their mode of life. In this respect, the collaboration of specialists in the Humanities and Science is essential for the solution of scientific questions concerning these peoples. Over the past few years, a large amount of new proxy data related to environmental changes during the Pleistocene and the Holocene and their impact on human life has become available. Our discussion was predominantly limited to environmental changes related to the Holocene. In st this period of about 10000 years, the main focus was on the 1 millennium BC.Archaeology. Chronology and cultural affinity of the kurgan Arzhan-2 complex according to archaeological data (K. Chugunov, H. Parzinger, A. Nagler). Some chronological problems of European Scythia: archaeology and radiocarbon (A.Yu Alekseev). Migrations of early nomads of the Eurasian steppe in a context of climatic changes (N. Bokovenko). The Northern Black Sea steppes in the Cimmerian epoch (S. Makhortykh). Chronology. Radiocarbon, the calibration curve and Scythian chronology (J. van der Plicht). The occupation history of the southern Eurasian steppe during the Holocene: chronology, the calibration curve and methodological problems of the Scythian chronology (G.I. Zaitseva, and B van Geel). 14C dating of the Siberian Steppe Zone from Bronze Age to Scythian time (J. Gorsdorf, H. Parzinger, A. Nagler).

Hajdas, G Bonani, I Y.Slusarenko, M Seifert). Problems of construction of a radiocarbon chronology for the time period 900-300 calBC (A. Michczynski).
