Lasting from around 4800 to 4000 BCE, the Lengyel culture helped usher in the Copper Age in Central Europe with the rise of mining, craft production, and the trading of copper and obsidian, in addition to larger‑scale farming. In this book, the authors investigate the migration of the Lengyel people as they moved west from their place of origin in modern‑day Hungary to areas in what is now the Czech Republic and Poland.
