In the Baikal region known traces of the ancient production of iron. To identify the technologies used for producing iron mineralogical, petrographic and analytical methods. installed physical characteristics \"traces\" Ц raw (original ores, fluxes, coal) and the newly formed products (slag, iron liners). The differences in the combinations used ores and fluxes determine the physical characteristics of the newly formed products of each center. They are informative for identifying types of ores and fluxes used for iron, the identification of potential migration routes of the ancient technology of iron production, for explanation of methods of identification of products from iron smelted in different regions and historical periods, applications in various wars.
