Everything changed with the Linear Pottery culture. They were the first real peasants of Central Europe. That cultural shock is at the root of civilization and believed to be reflected in the bible, where Cain murders Abel. The farmer defeats the nomad. But the Neolithic Revolution also left more tangible traces. Some of the earliest pottery survived the ages, and it is a very special moment to have this well-preserved vessel from the earliest farmers in your hands.
