Archaeologists disagree about the origins and character of the Early Neolithic settlement of the northeast Adriatic, and the role of Mesolithic hunter-gatherers in the transition to farming in the region. In this paper we review the evidence from cave sites in the Trieste and Istrian karsts, and place that evidence in the wider regional context, focusing on issues of chronology, taphonomy and identity.
