Early Neolithic, the First Farmers in Europe, 7000–5500/5000 BC

  • Sarunas Milisauskas
Part of the Interdisciplinary Contributions to Archaeology book series (IDCA)


In most of Europe the Neolithic is defined as the time segment starting with the appearance of farming communities and lasting until the appearance of bronze metallurgy, which marks the beginning of the Bronze Age. The east Baltic, Belarus, and Russian Neolithic however is defined by the appearance of pottery and polished stone tools (Gimbutas 1956, Dolukhanov 1979, Rimantienė 1996, Dolukhanov et al. 2005). Zhilin (2000:287) has pointed out that if the Neolithic were defined by the presence of farming, then there would be no Neolithic in the forest zone of eastern Europe.
