The Starčevo Culture Horizon at the Site of Kneževi Vinogradi (Eastern Croatia)
Lithic and Osseous Industries
Keywords:Starčevo-Körös-Criş culture, eastern Croatia, ground stone industry, osseous industry, Neolithic technology
The region of Slavonia in eastern Croatia represents the westernmost area inhabited by the communities of the Starčevo culture, part of the Starčevo-Körös-Criş cultural complex. This region was intensively inhabited during the period between 6200 and 5500 cal BC, and numerous sites were excavated. Some of the aspects of the lives of these communities, however, are still insufficiently explored, in particular the economy and craft production. In this paper we will focus on lithic and osseous tool assemblages from the site of Kneževi Vinogradi-Osnovna škola. The Starčevo cultural horizon has only yielded small assemblages of lithic and osseous tools, but they show some interesting technological and typological traits.
