The Beginning of the Neolithic in Eastern Greece and Western Anatolia

100 years of intensive research of the Neolithic in Greece have been initiated by Chr. Tsountas’ excavations in Thessaly. In an international effort scholars were able to provide the basis for the understanding of the Neolithic material culture. Different Archaeological schools with different approaches elaborated comprehensive typological and chronological schemes, among them scholars like V. Milojcic, D. Theocharis and S. Weinberg. Beyond such descriptive approaches and definitions of periods and subperiods, questions concerning the transition from the Mesolithic to the Neolithic were discussed controversially. The idea of a Preceramic period in the Eastern part of the Aegean was accepted by both archaeologists in favour of an autochthonous development, since an incipient Neolithic without pottery would point to a local development. Scientists favouring the colonization model, also sustained the high 14C-data for the beginning of the Neolithic around 7000 BC, since this age would correspond to the latest phase of the PPN in the Near East.
