Abstract: The present article investigates basic features of the Early Mesolithic phase of prehistory in the Northwestern Pontic region with regard to its connection with the Black Sea basin and history of adjacent landscapes. The main task here is to examine whether changes in the natural habitat (especially taken in the light of rival scenarios of Black Sea level change at the Pleistocene-Holocene boundary)were synchronous with changes of livelihood and tool production strategy in the local human populations. Such a geoarchaeological approach is based on widely known patterns of hunter- gatherer ecology and mobility (Binford, 1978) applied to the specific environmental characteristics of a Northwestern Pontic steppe ecotone in the Younger Dryas-Preboreal interval.
