*****GK: Really? Like what for instance? I think it
would be more interesting for readers here to get
precise points rather than vague innuendos.****

****GK: Indeed I am. It is the Trypilja material at
Dereivka sites (and the Dereivka material at Trypolja
sites) which enabled Ukrainian archaeologists to
synchronize these cultures.*****

*****GK: Your concern is touching. I told this forum
exactly why I was unimpressed with Marsha Levine's
treatment of Dereivka. And the vague report of Zwelbil
you offered didn't sound too encouraging. It's as if
he knew nothing about the thousands of horse bones and
splinters found at Dereivka, "only an enclosure". But
perhaps I shouldn't have judged him by the messenger
and I will look at it. Can you read material in East
European languages?******
