Abstract: During recent years, the Altered, or climatic optimum of the Late Glacial, has remained at the center of attention within the framework of discussions about the strategies of human adaptation in the Black Sea basin and the coastal zone development at the Pleistocene-Holocene boundary. Adherents of the so-called Black Sea deluge hypothesis, following W. Ryan and W. Pitman, suggest that the Allerød was a crucial time when the famous ‘Flood’ took place. Proponents of non-catastrophic changes in the level of the Black Sea after the Last Glacial maximum view the Allerød as the starting point of the gradual sea-level rise. From an archaeological point of view, this discussion is traditionally illustrated by sites of the northwestern and western Pontic region, while cultural remains from the Crimean peninsula seem to be undeservedly ignored. This situation is caused, probably, by geological peculiarities of the coastal zone of Mountain Crimea, which is poorly illustrative for sea-level reconstruction. Nevertheless, its archaeological sites reveal traces of past human migrations, studies of which can highlight important aspects of human adaptation to global climate changes at the Pleistocene-Holocene boundary.
