  • Europe's Prehistoric Cultures

    This chart is in chronological order.. I think it might be a useful tool.

      It's ok as a VERY general outline, but has quite a few flaws. It mixes up cultures with time periods and uses terms not used by archaeologists. Further, some of the cultures listed were found in much more specific areas than those used by the authors. Much of the prehistory and archaeology content on Wikipedia is pretty bad.

        Clash of prehistoric cultures?

        The meeting of hunter/gatherer cultures and agriculturists, with their population explosion based on agriculture, was probably a traumatic event along the advancing Neolithic Agriculturalist frontier. The U5 mtDNA haplotype & sub-clades were probaly decimated and scattered.

        I'm U5b2.

            Not the farmers, but the cowboys were in town?

            Rootsi's, Sykes'and other surveys indicate that in Europe the Neolithic DNA profiles only penetrated to the 24% level leaving the great majority of pre-agricultural DNA profiles in place. Yes, there must have been a slowly marching front of change, maybe a few thousand years from Anatolia to Ireland.

            But the "trauma" may have only been a joyful shower of Cupid's arrows, due to the encouragement of procreation, by a surge of plenty. At night, that "frontier" must have sounded like a porn movie!
            I still ponder on how the cattle-raising culture based on the lactose-tolerance mutation affected it also. Cowboys in town?
