This project deals with the processes of formation and collapse of the Chalcolithic Cucuteni-Tripolye mega-sites with regard to social conditions and consequences, spatial behaviour, the organisation of subsistence and economy and the use of environmental resources. Such processes will be explored in three different regions, covering single mega-sites and their surroundings with a concentration on surveying, excavation, formal analyses of social space and palaeo-environmental reconstructions.
