Danilo Culture

Quick Reference


Neolithic communities of the Dalmatian coast of Croatia and Bosnia of the period 4700 bc down to 3900 bc. The culture developed from the local Impressed Ware Culture, its distinctive pottery being decorated with incised geometric shapes emphasized by the use of white and red filler added after firing. Occupation sites include caves and open sites. Danilo groups seem to have had trade links, as the ceramic assemblages include Ripoli ware from Italy.
