Gurina, Nina Nikolayevna (1909-1990), an archaeologist, a researcher of the Stone Age. During 1937-1930 Gurina attended the Moscow State University, then she worked at museums of Kandalaksha and Petrozavodsk towns. From 1935 Gurina worked at GAIMK (now it is the nstitute of the Material Culture History of the Russian Academy of Sciences) where her whole scientific life was spent. Results of Gorina's longstanding expeditions for studing monuments of the Stone Age and the early Iron Age in Karelia and the Leningrad Oblast were resulted in her basic work "Drevnyaya istoriya Severo-Zapada Evropeiskoy chasti SSSR" ("The Ancient History of the North-West of the European part of the USSR", 1961). Gurina's field investigations made important contribution into studing the Neolothic epoch in Baltic States, Belorussia, the Kola Peninsula, the Volga region, Siberia. Also they assisted to separate a number of the Heolithic cultures (Cultures of Valday, the Kola Peninsula, the Narva, the Neman and others) and the early Iron Age as the special period in the history of the forest zone, studing the problems of settling the North of Russia.
