Description Many sites of the Neolithic Sopot culture (about 5,000 BC) have been identified in Slavonia (eastern Croatia) over the last 30 years. The sites are in various stages of investigation. At the sites of Gorjani–Topole and Gorjani–Kremenjača, Preslatinci–Ugljara, and Tomašanci–Dubrava i Gradina, aerial imagery was studied to observe structures; a circular enclosure was identified at Gorjani–Topole. Ground surveys were carried out in order to establish chronology and a large-scale magnetic prospection was conducted with a multi-probe fluxgate gradiometer. The results of earlier research, as well as the newly observed features at selected sites were reevaluated, and new patterns were identified using an integrative approach.
