This original set of cultivated plants remained stable for a long time: early farmers of Greece had little inclination to experiment with new species. In this respect, negative evidence is also revealing: Papaver somniferum, one of the few European domesticates unknown in the Near East, has never been identified in Neolithic seed assemblages from Greece. Yet, its presumed wild progenitor (P. setigerum) is well represented in the European Mediterranean basin (van Zeist 1980: 133–4), which suggests that these first farmers, coming from a region where the plant was unknown, were 15 As will be discussed later (pp.

It is probably no coincidence that here Early Neolithic sites are extremely rare. In lowland Thessaly, where the densest settlement is observed, the forest would have been naturally more open and less prone to rapid spontaneous rejuvenation. Once cleared, the hot and dry summers and the presence of grazing animals would have prevented the growth of trees in favour of steppe species (Olszewski 1993: 421–2). From Boeotia southwards, the first Neolithic groups must have encountered an even more open landscape.
