Abstract:

Bronocice is a large Neolithic site located at the eastern edge of the Miechów Upland region in southeastern Poland. The objectives of the Bronocice excavations were twofold: 1) to investigate the prehistoric environment, chronology, economy, settlement system, and social organization of Neolithic cultures, and 2) to demonstrate the origin of complex societies in the region. Radiocarbon datingprovides information on the duration and sequence of each occupational phase at Bronocice and therefore is essential to understanding Neolithic chronology and achieving the above-stated objectives. For our study, 27 wood charcoal samples were dated at the Dicarb Laboratory in the United States. Since the samples were selected from the pits containing ceramics, the radiocarbon dates can becompared with the relative chronology of the ceramics. This procedure provided a general, yet a fairly accurate evaluation of the data. The primary results from the radiocarbon dating are as follows: 1) the Bronocice settlement was occupied between 3110±110 be and 2130 ±65 be, and 2) the Bronocice settlement spanned six occupational phases: Lublin-Volynian culture (Lengyel-Polgar cycle in southeastern Poland), Funnel Beaker culture (BR I - I I I phases), and the Baden cycle (BR IV-V).
