The article studies middle – second half of the first millennium BC dwellings found on the Gorodets settlements from the forest-steppe area of the Don region. Majority of sites belonging to this culture are short-term stations without any permanent structures. Such structures were found only on stationary settlements located in river basins and on hillforts. Overall, thirteen surface (including with partly buried foundation) and three half-buried dwellings were studied, including some small (3.5–7 sq.m), medium (11–17 sq.m) and bigger (over 25 sq.m) structures, of different shapes (rectangular, square, trapezoid). Half of the structures had open hearths. Three hillforts contained traces of dwellings forming one complex with fortifications. The studied structures find analogies both within the Gorodets area and on adjacent forest-steppe and forest areas.
