The mysterious Cucuteni-Trypillia culture

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

Around 6200 years ago, farmers living on the eastern fringes of Europe, in what is now Ukraine, did something inexplicable. They left their neolithic villages and moved into a sparsely inhabited area of forest and steppe.

There, in an area roughly the size of Belgium between the modern cities of Kiev and Odessa, they congregated at new settlements up to 20 times the size of their old ones.

This enigmatic culture, known as the Cucuteni-Trypillia, predates the earliest known cities in Mesopotamia, a civilisation that spanned part of the Middle East, and in China.

It persisted for 800 years, but then, as mysteriously as it had begun, this experiment in civilisation failed.

Maybe they disappeared like the civilisations of Maya and Incas? Due to climate changes, and a great droughts that caused the dissappearance of water sources?

THe Maya and Incas did not disappear, the Pope Greg's warrior preists disappeared them.  The Anazazi in the SW U.S. did not disappear, they moved to new pueblos along the river because of drought.   Those people did not disappear either, they moved, probably because of weather or other environmental conditions.

I'd like to see proof of that.

No, climate change was impossible then, no one drove SUVs powered by fossil fuels.
