Złota Culture

Quick Reference


Late Neolithic communities forming part of the Globular Amphora Culture in the period 3200–2800 bc, occupying sites along the Vistula River in southeast Poland. Named after a cemetery site at Złota, Sandomierz, Poland, the Złota Culture shares many traits with other nearby groups, especially the Baden Culture. Pottery includes corded ware, globular amphorae, and cups with upturned handles. Copper and amber ornaments were used. The dead were buried laid in a contracted position on stone pavements in cist graves. The houses are square in plan, made of wattle and daub. The subsistence economy was farming, but Złota communities also exploited flint seams in the region by digging flint mines.
