Magnetic prospection has opened remains of the large objects, probably communal buildings at the sites of Cucuteni-Trypillya over the last decade. Some of them reached previously unprecedented sizes, from few hundred up to thousand square m. But only several such objects have been investigated. The largest of them comes from the settlement of Nebelivka in Ukraine. Its size is about 20 x 60 m. Part of the complex is a two-storey building. On its first floor were altar platforms, the largest of which was over four meters across. Unusual finds include a gold pendant and several dozen ceramic tokens. Probably this building was the main temple of the settlement. It could accommodate from hundreds to thousands of visitors at a time.
