Kelteminar arrowheads are rarely found at Neolithic sites outside Western Central Asia. In the Altai, the settlements of Tytkesken-2 and 6 in the middle Katun basin have yielded the largest collection of arrowheads of this type (7 and 1 specimens, respectively). Two more arrowheads were found at Peresheyechnoye VI (Gulbische) and Krivoye-1 in the Southwestern Altai. The Kelteminar arrowheads from the Altai can be classifi ed into three types according to their technical and typological features: the Southern Kyzylkum, Khorezmian, and Tytkesken. The arrowheads were imported to the Altai in the course of the ethnic-cultural contacts of the local populations with the bearers of the Kelteminar culture. Possibly, the Kelteminar traditions developed in the Altai, resulting in the formation of the Tytkesken type of arrowheads.
