The Articulation of a 'New Neolithic'.

The meaning of the Swifterbant Culture for the process of neolithisation in the western part of the North European Plain (4900-3400 BC)

D.C.M. Raemaekers
01 January 1999
The articulation of a "New neolithic"


Raemaekers aims in his thesis to bridge the gap between the site-oriented reports and the general supra-regional discussions of the Mesolithic-Neolithic transition through a systematic description of the material remains from the sites of the Swifterbant Culture by means of a regional study. A further focus is on the social relations between neighbouring cultures in German Rhineland and Denmark, as appears from their material legacy, resulting in a discussion of the nature of the transition Mesolithic-Neolithic in northwestern Europe from a long-term perspective.
