Abstract

Paper discusses archaeological data of the emergence and development of pastoralism on the Eastern Adriatic coast from social perspective. Formation of pastoralism is placed in the context of social changes within indigenous hunter-gathering communities. Incorporation of sheep into households brought the change in social relations of production and caused fragmentation of communities into independent, mobile households, which did not form complex social structures.
