Abstract

“Centers of power” refers to large settlements with 1,000 or more inhabitants. They appear in Ancient Europe before 5000 BC and known there for the next thousand years. To the east of the Carpathians, the oldest settlements of this type appear already in the II-III phases of Precucuteni-Trypillia A. In this period, their area did not exceed 20 hectares. After 4500 BC,centers with an area of 30-70 hectares appear. They existed in every local group in the territory between the Carpathians and the Dnieper. The eponymous site Trypillia, the territory of which reaches 70 hectares, belongs to this time. Research results indicate that the entire territory was settled at the same time. Rapid growth can be attributed to demographic processes. During this period, a planning scheme for large settlements was formed. It includes an unbuilt center and two ovals of houses located at a certain distance from each other. Settlements were fortified with palisades. The magnetic survey showed the presence of large, probably public buildings located in a certain part of the settlement in all such settlements.
