added by archaeologs [Csdka]. A tell settlement of the later Neolithic period, located in the middle Tisa Valley in the Yugoslav Banat and dated to the late 5th to early 4th millennium be. Totally excavated by F. Mora in the first decade of this century, the site has two main chronological phases: a mixed SzAKALHAT-Early VinCa horizon, and a mixed TiszA-Late Vinca horizon. These ‘mixed’ assemblages denote overlap zones in pottery consumption rather than ethnic differences and occur throughout the Neolithic of the north Banat. Two of the earliest hoards of jewellery in the Balkan Neolithic occur in the Szakalhât layers and include shell, bone and stone ornaments and malachite rings. Workshops for making antler harpoons and bone finger rings are known from the Tisza levels.
