The article presents the results obtained from the cultural horizon 4/5 of Studenoe-2 with remains of a Late Palaeolithic dwelling complex with six hearths. Initialy all the structures were considered synchronous. However, a careful study of the spatial distribution of finds coupled with the results of radiocarbon analyses revealed that the complex includes three non-coeval household units: a dwelling with two hearths, a domestic zone with two/three (?) hearths, and a circular singlehearth dwelling. A series of 11 AMS radiocarbon dates ranging from 18 800 to 14 500 14C years BP testifies that the site was a place of recurrent human habitation and that the three units mentioned above formed at different times.

Keywords: Transbaikalia, Late Palaeolithic, dwelling complex, hearths, planigraphy, chronology.
