Summary/Abstract: In 1995 I discovered a locality in Western Transdanubia. Judging from the settlements, the small settlement of Szentgyörgyvölgy-Pityerdomb, which was developed within four years, is more in keeping with the culture of the oldest linear pottery groups and, on the basis of the finds, with the recent phase of the Starčevo culture from the south. The work approaching the end has brought a number of surprising results in connection with the development of house building and the development of the types of transdan Ubischen (Central European) linear pottery groups or their ornamentation. In the settlement also numerous objects to be interpreted under the aspect of cultic customs or the religious world came to light. I would like to briefly introduce these here, because in the interpretation of the objects various thoughts concerning the early world of beliefs went through my mind, which I would like to share with you.
