Abstract: 

Based on the study of ancient and buried soils within modern left Dnepr river bank forest-steppe the natural conditions of human life in the late Pleistocene – Holocene have been reconstructed. The basic method used was a complex paleopedological and method of buried Chrono rows using micromorphological analysis. Climate change trend during Holocene has been detailed in fractional steps as well as the rhythmic changes of nature in the late Pleistocene and Holocene within the study area have been revealed.

Key words:
