ABSTRACT
The problem of historical and cultural objects destruction in the zone of large reservoirs negative impact is now one of the most pressing problems in the preservation of historical heritage on the territory of Russian Federation. Approximately 36% of the reservoir banks of Russia are being actively destroyed, which leads to permanent withdrawal of large areas from the land use of valuable coastal areas. Two major reservoirs, Kuybyshevskoye and Nizhnekamskoye are located on the territory of the Republic of Tatarstan (RT), Russia. That’s why the problem of conservation of archaeological heritage is highly relevant for the RT, where most of archaeological sites from the Mesolithic to the late Middle Ages, now situated in the coastal zone of this reservoirs, and 942 objects destroying because of intensive abrasion processes.
