Further notes on Mesolithic-Neolithic contacts in the Iron Gates Region and the Central Balkans
Keywords: Balkans, Mesolithic, Neolithic, Lepenski Vir, hunter-gatherer/farmer, interaction, migration, landscape learning
AbstractHunter-gatherer/farmer contact in the Iron Gates region is re-examined in view of recent archaeological research, and the social dynamics, population movements and interactions of small scale societies. Full, non-hostile interaction between hunter-gatherers and farmers in the Iron Gates region is proposed for the mid- 7th millennium calBC, followed by hunter-gatherer encapsulation at the end 7th millennium calBC. The lack of archaeological records on the Central Balkan Postglacial and Early Holocene hunter-gatherers is highlighted as a major obstacle to fully understanding cultural transformations, including the Neolithic transition, in this region.
