"abstract": "<p>In this study, we reconstruct population dynamics in the Early Neolithic of the Eastern<br>\nBalkans and the Great Hungarian Plain using frequency of radiocarbon dates as a population proxy.<br>\nThe method of summed calibrated radiocarbon probability distributions is applied to a set of dates<br>\nrecently published in Bulgaria and Hungary. The aim is to test the hypothesis of the Neolithic demographic<br>\ntransition (NDT) in these regions and to compare the patterns between these two and<br>\nneighbouring regions. The results show that episodes of population growth occurred in both regions,<br>\nwhich is in partial agreement with the predictions of the NDT theory. Population growth is detected,<br>\nbut it is followed by a bust, rather than stabilisation as predicted for the second phase of the NDT.</p>",
