5600/5500 cal. BC witnessed major cultural transformations or abrupt changes in virtually all regions of Anatolia and Thrace, most notably pottery production, subsistence patterns, architecture and symbolic expression. By surveying both old and recent evidence from central and western Anatolia, and Thrace, this article aims to make a comparative analysis of the cultural change in the wider region. This study ultimately claims that the degree of these changes is varied from one region to another, and the material culture of this transitional period is eclectic in nature.
