The Körös culture/Criş culture is a Neolithic archaeological culture in Central Europe that was named after the river Körös in eastern Hungary. The same river has the name Criș in Romania, hence the name Criş culture; the 2 variants of the river name are used for the same archaeological culture in the 2 regions. The Criș culture survived from about 5800 to 5300 BC, it is related to the neighboring Starčevo culture and is included within a larger grouping known as the Starčevo–Körös–Criş culture.[1]
