Civilization came in the wake of migration

Archaeologist Barbara Horejs explores the history of civilization. Her research centers on the Neolithic period, a formative era about 10,000 years ago when humans became sedentary. In her project, Horejs discovered one of the oldest sites in Turkey where pioneers from the east settled permanently, much earlier than previously thought. It is from there that agriculture, animal husbandry and many innovations spread to Europe via the Balkan route.

Horej's discoveries make a significant contribution to our understanding of our European identity and way of life. In particular, they make us aware of the way migration has shaped human history since time immemorial.
