Between the middle Neolithic and the start of the late Neolithic period which sees changes in the west Balkans.

Vinča culture

The Starčevo culture in Serbia was replaced by the Vinča culture from where I have taken the term "Developed Neolithic" for this period. The Vinča culture made use of copper and continued to exist in parallel with the emerging eneolithic cultures.

"Linear pottery" culture developed in Hungary, known as Alföld linear or Alföld Vonaldíszes Kerámica (AVK) or East Slokavian Linear or Ciueşti in eastern Hungary and Transdanubian linear in western Hungary.
