The aim of this article is to reconstruct the nutrition system of the medieval inhabitants of the Perm Territory located in the western foothills of the Ural mountain range. The investigation is built on a comprehensive analysis of archaeological sources available and on the basis if anthropological materials with involvement of radioactive tracer analysis. As a result of the measures taken within this examination it is possible to conclude that grain crops played a minor role in the diet of the medieval population of the Cis-Ural Perm Region, who relied predominantly on protein-rich food. The research is built on a comprehensive analysis of archeological sources and anthropological materials involving initial results of radioactive tracer analysis which was conducted on the territory under investigation. We have primarily examined the materials from burial grounds of the period when hoe agriculture was prevalent. The conclusions drawn from the anthropological and isotope analysis are in compliance with the notion that this kind of agriculture was low-yield and that grain crops played a minor role in the diet; protein-based foods dominated.
