Abstract

The idea of the Neolithisation of the Sava-Drava-Danube interfluve has undergone very little change since S. Dimitrijević's time. Despite their many shortcomings, new archaeological excavations and radiocarbon dates of Early Neolithic sites have provided us with new insight into the process of Neolihisation of this region. Using the recently published work by B. Weninger and L. Clare (Clare, Weninger 2010; Weninger et al. 2009; Weninger et al. 2014) as a starting point, the available radiocarbon and archaeological data are used to build up a time frame comparable to the wider region of Southeast Europe and climate conditions for specific period. The results fit the model of Neolithisation well (Weninger et al. 2014.9, Fig. 4), filling in the geographical gaps.
