Methodological Approaches to the Study of the Worldview of the South and East Siberia Population in the Paleometal Era: Historiographical Aspect
Various approaches to the study of the worldview of the South and East Siberia population in the paleometal era took place in the XXth- early XXIst centuries. Original traditional approach was supplemented by structural-semiotic approach and by the theory of the graphic invariants. Now there is a tendency to the synthesis of methodological bases that made possible to consider religious-mythological systems of the ancient population in the context of the cultural and historical processes.
Key words: paleometal era, Siberia, worldview, burial rite, art, methodology, methods, reconstruction.
