During 2003-2006 a project on the Starcevo-Cris pottery was carried
out at the Institute of Archaeology, University College London (UK). The
aim of the project was to shed more light on the Neolithisation process of
the Balkan Peninsula. The methods employed to answer this question were
scientific analysis of ceramics and fired clay objects, and radiocarbon dating
of samples, from 20 early Neolithic sites in Serbia, Romania, and Slavonia.
The ceramic analyses were carried out in order to define possible
routes of trade/exchange in the early Neolithic and the manufacturing
process of fired clay objects. The radiocarbon dating was required to define
an absolute chronology for the early Neolithic in this region and to identify
possible routes for the spread of the Neolithic (Biagi P., Spataro M., 2005;
Biagi et al., 2005).
