Painted pottery plays a significant role in explaining early farming communities. The remarkable styles of white-on-red painted pottery can be considered one of the most well-known characteristics in the Early Neolithic Balkans. This preliminary study attempts to clarify the picture, comparing white-on-red painted pottery between sites in the Balkans, the Aegean and Western Anatolia. Correspondence analysis and distribution maps are used to explore regional and interregional connections.
