Land use, cultivation, and animal husbandry during the Neolithic in North-Eastern Europe between c. 6000 and – 1000 BC

Project Details


The aim of the project is to achieve a new kind of understanding of emergence of farming during the Neolithic Stone Age in the North-Eastern Europe (c 5500–2000 BC). There is increasing evidence that the initial stage of cereal cultivation in Northern Europe took place from the very beginning of Neolithic Stone Age, ca. 5300 – 4000 onwards. The high resolution multiproxy analyses from lake sediments allow the accurate reconstruction of landscapes, land use, and existence of domesticated plants and animals during the Neolithic.
