The article analyzes important issues related to the archaeology of the Paleolithic period and the
landscape of this period, which is an important part of the archaeology of Uzbekistan. It is known that the
scientific study of the Stone Age in Uzbekistan began in 1938 with the discovery of the famous Teshiktash
cave from the Middle Paleolithic. The territory of Uzbekistan is one of the first regions of the world and one
of the centres of culture. As in the Eurasian region, the history of our country dates back to the Paleolithic or
ancient Stone Age. In our country, several places in this period have been registered and studied. These
include Selungur in the Ferghana Valley, Chashma, the lower layers of the monuments of Kolbulak and
Kyzylolma in the valley of the Akhangaron River in the Tashkent Region, the finds of Dzharsa and
Bokantog in the Kyzylkum Region. The most important of them is Selungur Cave. Interactions of
communities of this period with nature and their influence on landscapes are analyzed.
