Quick Reference


Local Hungarian culture of the middle Copper Age (early 3rd millennium bc) that succeeded the Tiszapolgár Culture. There is marked continuity between the two cultures in their settlements and cemeteries. Cattle played an important role in the domestic economy. Copper tools of the period include shaft‐hole axe‐adzes, chisels, and awls. Plain wares predominate in funerary deposits in contrast to domestic sites, which yield pottery decorated in ‘stab‐and‐drag’ (Furchenstich) technique, with chequerboard and hatched patterns filled with white paste. Succeeded by the Baden Culture.
