This article is dedicated to the deposit of the flint blades, found in the settlement of the latest period of development of the Tripolian culture (C II) Sharin III (v. Sharin, Uman' district, Cherkassy region, Ukraine). Regarding the analogous deposits (Halep'ye, Sandraky, Ivano-Frankovsk, Kosenovka) from the Southern Bug and Dnieper and the Southern Bug and middle Dnestr rivers, we may consider them as deposits of raw material. Taking into account the location of the deposits (near buildings), value and prestige of the high quality flint from Volynia, this deposits can be connected with rituals. Further, the depositions were the part of a ritual of “leaving the settlements”.
