Abstract [en]

In this paper, we discuss variations seen in the ornamentation and modes of manufacturingpottery from the end of the mid-Neolithic 4600–4300 BP on the Island of Gotland in theBaltic Sea. The Pitted Ware cultural groups have been discussed as a western influence from the Swedishmainland, but the aDNA on skeletal remains point to eastern influences. We analyse and discusspottery from the well-investigated Ajvide Pitted Ware site and what these variations mean interm of intra- and inter-island relationships, ethnicity and change, and we suggest the developmentof what could be described as a hybrid culture.
