The Tripolye–Cucuteni culture (Ukrainian: ‘Tripillia’; henceforth ‘T-C’) was one of the longest-lasting groupings in east European prehistory. Its overall duration of more than two millennia (5000–2800 cal BC) encompassed an estimated 60–70 human generations; different T-C persons were coeval with the gradual decline of European foraging, the earliest farming in central and north-west Europe and the foundation of Troy, while pre-dating the emergence of the Egyptian, Mesopotamian and Minoan states and the building of Stonehenge phase 1 (Fig. 5.1). It was also one of the largest cultural distributions in what Gimbutas (1982) termed ‘Old Europe’,stretching from the eastern Carpathians in the west to the Dniepr in the east and located in both the forest-steppe to the east and the warm temperate forest zone to the west (Fig. 5.2). The time-space distribution of the T-C group depends upon the shared characteristics of the rich ceramic assemblages, by now excavated from over 100 settlements. The extension of T-C represented the emergence of mixed farming in a large new area.
