The huge territory of Central Asia between the Urals Mountain and the Yenisei till the Amudarya was populated by the tribes of Andronovskaya culture with no interruption during the Bronze Age. One of the major attributes, allowing establishing origin of ancient tribes and even cultures is the technology of potter's manufacture and decoration as they are specific at different ethnic groups. In conditions of house craft, traditions of manufacture are transferred and are steadily kept from generation to generation. This is true especially for the archaic culture, so this concerns all the peoples of the «steppe belt» of Eurasia and adjoining steppe and forest-steppe zones. This aspect is important for finding-out of an ethnic identification of Andronovskskiy population as it is the most numerous archaeological materials from settlements and from funeral monuments.
