    Clive Bonsall (University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh) Forager–farmer Interactions? The Iron Gates from 6300 to 5900 cal BC          After millennia of a relatively stable fisher-hunter-gatherer adaptation in the Iron Gates section of the lower Danube valley, significant changes in the archaeological record occur between c. 6200 and 5950 cal BC. These changes include the appearance of lime plaster pyrotechnology and sculptured boulders at Lepenski Vir, ‘exotic’ raw materials (Balkan flint, obsidian and Spondylus shell), pottery, ground-edge tools, new burial practices, and archaeozoological and stable isotopic evidence of changing subsistence practices and population movements.

  • Farming Arrived in Europe with Asian Migrants, Isotopic Study Reveals

    on Feb 24, 13 • in Anthropology, Archaeology, Mesolithic, Neolithic, News, Romania, Serbia • with Comments Off on Farming Arrived in Europe with Asian Migrants, Isotopic Study Reveals

    Strontium isotope data from the Danube Gorges in the north-central Balkan show Europe’s first farmers were immigrants. “One of the big questions in European archaeology has been whether farming was brought or borrowed from the Near East,” said Dr Douglas Price of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, who co-authored a paper published in the early edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Dr Price with colleague Dr Dusan Boric of Cardiff University, the UK, measured strontium isotopes in the teeth of 153 humans from Neolithic burials (6,200 B.C.) in an area known as the Danube Gorges
