About 7000 years ago in what is now Southwest Germany, was a city called 'Herxheim', a city that was mysteriously abandoned. A few years ago, Dr. Bruno Boulestin and his team were investigating the region, when they hit a grave containing the bones of 500 people. The marks on the bones show that the bodies were skinned and had their flesh removed using techniques almost identical to those for butchering animals. One researcher suggested that some of the victims could even have been…

Europe's First Carpenters - Researchers in Germany have discovered four wells more than 7,000 years old. The wells, all underground constructions of hewn oak, are evidence that Neolithic inhabitants of central Europe were accomplished carpenters, capable of felling and working trees three feet thick into planks, then carefully fitting them together.

First farmers on the Polish Lowland. The transition to farming on the Polish Lowland, which is a part of the North European Plain, was a complex process lasting over a millennium. Those regions were settled by the first wave of Neolithic farmers belonging to the so called Linear Band Pottery Culture (Linearbandkeramik, LBK),  This culture lasted for about 600 years, from 5500 to 4900 cal BC. Image of a grave of the Brześć Kujawski culture dug in a pit connected with an older LBK house.
