Three case studies are presented in this paper, with the goal to outline some basic characteristics and changes in settlement patterns during three different prehistoric periods – from the Late Neolithic until the Late Eneolithic (in terms of absolute chronology: 5400/5300–4600/4500, 4600/4500–3900/3800 and 3200–2800).The paper is organized into three sections: the first section follows these patterns in Vinča, the second in Bubanj-Hum I, and the third in Late Eneolithic Coţofeni-Kostolac culture. Emphasis is placed on the spatial distribution of settlements in different regions of the Central Balkans, their topographic placement and regional characteristics.
