The research is devoted to the study of technological traditions in the Neolithic pottery of the Baikal-Yenisei Siberia. A brief review of works by Russian archaeologists in this area is given and the results of modern research, which are discussed in the territorial and chronological context are presented. Analysis of raw materials and molding compounds revealed different traditions for the Early and Late Neolithic. A characteristic feature of the Neolithic pottery of the region is the lack of flat-bottomed vessels and the use of the knocking techniques to shape vessels with the help of smooth and carved mallets, woven net and cord. In most cases, vessels were constructed on a capacitive program using a zonal patchwork. There were cases of preforms use in the manufacture of forms. Technical decor, as shown by our study, cannot act as a cultural trait, and the wide dissemination of knocking methods in conjunction with woven net belongs to the category of territorial (regional) specificities. The facts of using of the net, cord and woven forms in constructing of the vessels indirectly indicate the spread of the well-developed ideas about the primitive forms of textiles among the Baikal-Yenisei Siberia Neolithic people.
