We present a mathematical model, based on the compi lation and statistical processing of radiocarbon dates, of the transition from the Mesol ithic to the Neolithic, from about 7,000 to 4,000 BC in Europe. The arrival of the Neolithic is tradi tionally associated with the establishment of farming-based economies; yet in considerable areas of north-eastern… CONTINUE READING
