The archaeological site Vučedol

The archaeological site Vučedol

The archaeological site Vučedol is located along the bank of Dunav, 5 km downstream from Vukovar and it is one of the most important sites of Eneolithic period.
Vučedol was first inhabited around 6000 BC, at the time of the appearance of the first European farmers. The time between 3000-2200 BC was the most intense period of its existence. During its days of glory, the Vučedol culture stretched across a large area with a width of 700 km which included ten European states of today: the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro and Albania. Pottery especially stands out in the material culture and its outstanding technological quality and aesthetic values speak of a highly developed civilization. Vučedol ceramics draw attention with a perfect harmony of shape and placement of decorations. The most famous example is the Vučedol Dove, a cult pot in the shape of a bird and richly incrusted, which was found in 1938.
