The Carpathian Basin has been considered to be the venue of the last transformation to sedentary lifestyle from the Balkans towards Central Europe. Nevertheless, this region shows up remarkable differences, both in terms of the scenarios and the history of the first Neolithic communities as well as of their descendents. Whilst the Körös and Alföld LBK groups in eastern Hungary proved to remain stable in a gradually stratifying society, the Transdanubian Starčevo and LBK groups soon distributed in vast regions of Europe, between the Paris Basin and Little Poland. This study is meant to shed light on the possible reasons, and intends to summarise the results of an intensive research work into the Neolithic transition that has been done in the last 15 years.

Keywords: Central Europe, Carpathian Basin, Neolithic Transition, Early Neolithic, spread of farming
