Culture of southern Siberia of the 2nd millennium BC, which succeeded the Afanasievo culture in the same area. The population practised farming — cultivating wheat and millet and breeding cattle, sheep and horses — and lived in settlements of up to ten large semi-subterranean houses of logcabin construction., The burials, which are the best-known monuments of the culture, were either stone cists or stone enclosures with underground timber chambers. Artefacts include pottery and metal tools, which were derived from the ore sources of the Altai. The Andronovo was succeeded by the Karasuk culture.
