AB  - The article presents evidence about the Middle Palaeolithic and Middle to Upper Palaeolithic transition interval in the karst area of the Danube Gorges in the Lower Danube Basin. We review the extant data and present new evidence from two recently investigated sites found on the Serbian side of the Danube River - Tabula Traiana and Dubocka-Kozja caves. The two sites have yielded layers dating to both the Middle and Upper Palaeolithic and have been investigated by the application of modern standards of excavation and recovery along with a suite of state-of-the-art analytical procedures. The presentation focuses on micromorphological analyses of the caves' sediments, characterisation of cryptotephra, a suite of new radiometric dates (accelerator mass spectrometry and optically stimulated luminescence) as well as proteomics (zooarchaeology by mass spectrometry) and stable isotope data in discerning patterns of human occupation of these locales over the long term.

AB  - Archaeological dental calculus, or mineralized plaque, is a key tool to track the evolution of oral microbiota across time in response to processes that impacted our culture and biology, such as the rise of farming during the Neolithic. However, the extent to which the human oral flora changed from prehistory until present has remained elusive due to the scarcity of data on the microbiomes of prehistoric humans. Here, we present our reconstruction of oral microbiomes via shotgun metagenomics of dental calculus in 44 ancient foragers and farmers from two regions playing a pivotal role in the spread of farming across Europe-the Balkans and the Italian Peninsula. We show that the introduction of farming in Southern Europe did not alter significantly the oral microbiomes of local forager groups, and it was in particular associated with a higher abundance of the species Olsenella sp. oral taxon 807. The human oral environment in prehistory was dominated by a microbial species, Anaerolineaceae bacterium oral taxon 439, that diversified geographically. A Near Eastern lineage of this bacterial commensal dispersed with Neolithic farmers and replaced the variant present in the local foragers. Our findings also illustrate that major taxonomic shifts in human oral microbiome composition occurred after the Neolithic and that the functional profile of modern humans evolved in recent times to develop peculiar mechanisms of antibiotic resistance that were previously absent.

AB  - Forager focus on wild cereal plants has been documented in the core zone of domestication in southwestern Asia, while evidence for forager use of wild grass grains remains sporadic elsewhere. In this paper, we present starch grain and phytolith analyses of dental calculus from 60 Mesolithic and Early Neolithic individuals from five sites in the Danube Gorges of the central Balkans. This zone was inhabited by likely complex Holocene foragers for several millennia before the appearance of the first farmers similar to 6200 cal BC. We also analyzed forager ground stone tools (GSTs) for evidence of plant processing. Our results based on the study of dental calculus show that certain species of Poaceae (species of the genus Aegi(ops) were used since the Early Mesolithic, while GSTs exhibit traces of a developed grass grain processing technology. The adoption of domesticated plants in this region after similar to 6500 cal BC might have been eased by the existing familiarity with wild cereals.

AB  - The spread of early farming across Europe from its origins in Southwest Asia was a culturally transformative process which took place over millennia. Within regions, the pace of the transition was probably related to the particular climatic and environmental conditions encountered, as well as the nature of localized hunter-gatherer and farmer interactions. The establishment of farming in the interior of the Balkans represents the first movement of Southwest Asian livestock beyond their natural climatic range, and widespread evidence now exists for early pottery being used extensively for dairying. However, pottery lipid residues from sites in the Iron Gates region of the Danube in the northern Balkans show that here, Neolithic pottery was being used predominantly for processing aquatic resources. This stands out not only within the surrounding region but also contrasts markedly with Neolithic pottery use across wider Europe. These findings provide evidence for the strategic diversity within the wider cultural and economic practices during the Neolithic, with this exceptional environmental and cultural setting offering alternative opportunities despite the dominance of farming in the wider region.

AB  - Farming was first introduced to Europe in the mid-seventh millennium bc, and was associated with migrants from Anatolia who settled in the southeast before spreading throughout Europe. Here, to understand the dynamics of this process, we analysed genome-wide ancient DNA data from 225 individuals who lived in southeastern Europe and surrounding regions between 12000 and 500 bc. We document a west-east cline of ancestry in indigenous hunter-gatherers and, in eastern Europe, the early stages in the formation of Bronze Age steppe ancestry. We show that the first farmers of northern and western Europe dispersed through southeastern Europe with limited hunter-gatherer admixture, but that some early groups in the southeast mixed extensively with hunter-gatherers without the sex-biased admixture that prevailed later in the north and west. We also show that southeastern Europe continued to be a nexus between east and west after the arrival of farmers, with intermittent genetic contact with steppe populations occurring up to 2,000 years earlier than the migrations from the steppe that ultimately replaced much of the population of northern Europe.

AB  - An extensive survey and test excavations of cave and rockshelters and open-air sites in the Danube Gorges hinterlands were initiated in the autumn of 2004. This project, entitled 'Prehistory of north-east Serbia: Survey and Excavations', is a collaborative initiative between the Departments of Archaeology at the respective Universities of Cambridge and Belgrade. A number of sites were mapped during the survey phase of the project, and some test excavations of two newly discovered cave sites Peştera Mare and 'Tabula Traiana' Cave, were made (cf. figs. 1-2). Both excavated sites contained Holocene layers with traces of human habitation during later prehistory (Eneolithic and Early Iron Age), while 'Tabula Traiana' Cave also contained Pleistocene levels with traces of human habitation dated to the early Upper Paleolithic. The cave site of Peştera Mare (as Vlachs of eastern Serbia call it, i.e. - The Big Cave) is located in the mountainous area of Velika Rudina above the Upper Gorge of the Danube, at the altitude of 238 m above sea level. The large cave entrance (pl. I/1) is hidden and faces north-northwest. This is a long (ca. 65 m), tunnel- shaped cave (fig. 3/1) with sediments damaged by illicit digging. The cave was investigated in 2004 by opening Trial Trench 1/2004 (3 x 2 m) and Trial Trench 2/2004 (2 x 2 m). The cave sediments in the investigated part of the cave are shallow, and the bedrock was reached at 0.6-0.8 m from the surface level (fig. 4). It was not possible to differentiate cultural levels stratigraphically. It seems that the Eneolithic and Early Iron Age occupations made shallow pits in the yellowish brown loose sediment that was covering the bedrock. This sediment was likely formed during the Pleistocene and this conclusion is based on the finds of Pleistocene fauna (e.g. cave bear) throughout this layer. Discovered Eneolithic pottery (fig. 5) belongs to the Kostolac-Coţofeni cultural complex (ca. 3000-2900 B.C). This pottery is tempered with crushed stones and shells. The surfaces were roughly burnished and of dark coloring. The largest number of pottery finds can be classified as bowls for serving food along with storage and cooking pots. Bowls are characterized by biconical shapes. The outer surfaces of pottery were highly burnished and decorated with motifs of hanging triangles or were executed in the motif forming chessboard metopes done in the so-called Fürchenstich tehique and filled with white paint. Other fragments had their surfaces decorated with incised lines forming a net motif. Apart from the Eneolithic pottery that dominates the assemblage, a small number of pottery fragments can be dated to the Early Iron Age (8th century B.C) (fig. 6/1-6), and some of these were decorated by 'S' ornament characteristic of the Basarabi pottery style. The finds of animal bones indicate hunting of wild species (of which a large number were young animals) in the vicinity of the cave along with occasional fishing on the Danube. The site might have functioned as a specialized hunting camp both in the Eneolithic and the Early Iron Age. A few sporadic fragments of Early Mediaeval pottery were also uncovered (fig. 6/7). 'Tabula Traiana' Cave (pl. I/2) was discovered in the vicinity of the Roman stone inscription known as Tabula Traiana. The cave is part of the karstic massive of the Miroč mountain plateau, and is located downstream from the Lower Gorge of the Danube. It is situated some 25 m above the present level of the Danube at an altitude of 90-91 m above see level. The cave entrance is west facing. The cave is rather small (fig. 3/2), and pottery finds of late prehistoric date were laying on the surface due to illicit digging. Test excavations in the cave took place both in 2004 (Trial Trench 1/2004, size 2 x 2 m) and 2005 (Trial Trench 1/2005, size 4 x 1.5 m). The latest occupation (10-30 cm thick, is dated to the Early Iron Age although there were also sporadic finds of Late Roman-early Mediaeval pottery (fig. 9/8) possibly associated with a pit dug at the entrance to the cave. Only a few pottery fragments can be dated to the Eneolithic period and are stylistically related to the Coţofeni pottery style (fig. 8/1-3). A sterile layer separates the late Holocene occupation from Pleistocene levels of Early Upper Palaeolithic date (fig. 7). The most frequent finds of pottery can be dated to the Early Iron Age. There are possibly two chronological/stylistic phases in the Early Iron Age pottery. The older phase pottery can be dated to the early phase of the Bosut culture group, type Gornea-Kalakača (9th century B.C). This pottery is characterized by conical bowls with contracted-rim and ornamented with a band consisting of three parallel incised lines forming a zigzag motif (fig. 8/5-6). The later phase pottery can be dated to the Basarabi culture complex (figs. 8/7-13 9/1-7) on the basis of typical ornament consisting of continuous 'S' stamping on pot surfaces in combination with other decorative techniques. Such pottery is widespread across the Danube basin in this period. Map, including two newly discovered caves, of the sites of Kostolac-Coţofeni cultural complex (fig. 1) and early Basarabi culture (Gornea-Kalakača type) (fig. 2) on the Danube Gorges are presented.
