The article examines burials in a flexed position among the Late Middle Age population of Central Yakutia. We provide information on the general features and dating of the burials, medical and anatomical descriptions of the corpse placement, as well as available ethnographic and folklore evidences. The comparison of various historical and cultural parallels makes it possible to argue that in the Middle Age archaeological cultures of the Baikal area, there are burials that are analogous to the flexed position burials of the Yakut. The data obtained as a result of this research make important contributions to our knowledge of the early ethnic history of the Yakut.
