    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.

    The purpose of this book is to present in summary form the present state of knowledge of the Roman Danube in the light of recent research and archaeological discoveries. The river itself is the core, as it was for the Roman presence in Central and Eastern Europe from early in the first century A.D. to the last decades of the fourth century. In its long course from its confluence with the Inn at Passau, the point from which it assumes its dominant role, to its delta on the Black Sea, Europe’s greatest river impinges on
