HOUSE-STRUCTURES GREAT HUNGARIAN

UNDER CHANGE

ON THE

PLAIN IN EARLIER PHASES OF THE NEOLITHIC

• ABSTRACT: In this paper, the ground plans and reconstructions of early and middle Neolithic houses recently discovered in the Great Hungarian Plain will be studied in a chronological sequence. Their review offers an opportunity to outline trends in form and construction techniques, illustrating essential changes in the style of architecture.

Following the first comprehensive analysis of settlements and house forms associated with Linearband Pottery style ceramics in a European context (Schlette F., 1958), synthetic evaluations of the most characteristic house forms were also carried out (Moddermann P.J. R, 1970, 1986, 1988). Recently, this work has further been developed in the light of the latest research results (Lenneis 1997, 2000, Cladders M. - Stauble H., 2003, Stauble

called Balkan-Anatolian cultural complex in Anatolia and South-Eastern Europe (Garasanin M., 1954, 1998) has formed the core of the oeuvre by Milutin Carasanin throughout his life. He regarded areas north of his region of study - including the central Balkans, the Lower Danube Region and the southern section of the Carpathian Basin, also known as the "Balkan-Carpathian complex"an integral part of South-Eastern Europe that formed its northern frontier zone. In this model, the early Neolithic Koros-Starcevo-Cris cultures of the Balkan-Anatolian complex played a decisive role in the formation of Linearband Pottery cultures in Central Europe as well as in the Great Hungarian Plain (for summary see: Carasanin M., 1994). The same problem was also tackled from a Central European perspective. From the 1960s onwards, following in the footsteps of especially G. Childe (1929, 36-67), F. Schachermeyr (1953, 268-281, 1953-54, 1-39) by and R. Pittioni (1954, 126-128), studies published

long houses of the Central European Linearband Pottery culture from a purely architectural/technical point of view (Startin W., 1978; von Brandt D., 1980, 1988; Masuch A - Ziessow K.-H., 1983, 1985; Luley H., 1992). Changes in the buildings of the Linearband Pottery culture were analysed primarily within the framework of the Central and Western European Neolithic by A Coudart, on the basis of an impressive volume of information (Coudart A, 1998). Others developed a rather South-EasternEuropean approach to these constructions (Lichter

c.,

1993), sometimes comparing them directly to early Neolithic house types in the Balkans (Lenneis E., 1997, 2000). Continuing this chain of thoughts, most recently M. Lichardus-Itten - J. Lichardus have set out to trace back architectural techniques of the Central European Linearband Pottery culture to those observed in the houses of the Balkan-Carpathian complex. In their work they took data (Licharapextensive use of the latest archaeological

It is suggested here that the usually clearly structured wooden frames of the houses recovered at Fiizesabony as well as the wattle and daub used in filling gaps between wall posts show an important phenomenon: the complete separation of static wall function from insulation by the beginning of the middle Neolithic Alfold Linearband Pottery culture. a. e. b. however. independent.

The other noteworthy feature of the house discovered at Polgar-Kengyel-koz is its south-eastern room. This is the first instance in the history of the Alfold Linearband Pottery culture when food storage facilities may be seen within the house. Four basin-shaped pits were found within this nearly square-shaped area. 53).
