The Starčevo–Kőrös–Criş culture is a common name for a grouping of three related Neolithic archaeological cultures in Southeastern Europe: the Starčevo culture, the Kőrös culture, and the Criş culture.

  • The Criş culture, in what is now Romania, survived from about 5800 to 5300 BC, and is the same culture as Kőrös. The different names for the two stem from different names for the same river. The river named Körös in Hungary becomes the Criş river in Romania.[4]
