Abstract and Keywords
The ‘Neolithic’ in central and eastern Europe is conceptionalized as a mid-Holocene broad transitional period during which a number of major changes occurred, namely sedentism, the introduction of farming and animal rearing as well as container pottery technology, both among farmers and hunter-gatherers. These new technologies and economies had arrived from outside, the Near East and possibly central and eastern Asia. At least partly, these innovations were brought in by migrating people whose movements may have been triggered by climate fluctuations.
