Gennadii Zdanovich (born 4 October 1938; Russian: Геннадий Борисович Зданович) is a Russian archaeologist based at the historical site of Arkaim, Chelyabinsk.

Zdanovich led the excavation campaign at Arkaim in the Southern Urals.[1]

In the archeology of the Sintashta culture, he introduced the term "the Country of Towns".[2]

He is a proponent of an approach which seeks to unify archaeological and ecological approaches to the environment. Such holistic approaches have been in part responsible for raising awareness of 'Arkaim' amongst followers of New Age belief systems.[citation needed]
