The article presents results of analysises the loss on ignition and radiocarbon dating of the bottom sediments of Lake Terebenskoye. Based on the obtained data, a preliminary reconstruction of the sedimentation processes of lakes of the Valdai Upland in the Holocene is constructed. The stages of minerogenic sedimentation in the Older and Younger Dryas and organogenic sedimentation in the Allerd and Preboreal are distinguished.
