The author searches answers for chronological questions of the Complex of Polgár (Bodrogkeresztúr and Hunyadihalom cultures) that existed in the second half of the 5th millennium BC in the eastern parts of the Carpathian basin. The work is based on 47 cemeteries that supplied sufficient material for the analysis. Methodology was provided by metrical analysis and seriation of 818 dish types and 577 graves. Artificial periods (“künstliche Perioden”) and the phases of cemetery usage (“Belegungsphasen”) were identified both in the particular cemeteries and in the five analyzed regions. As a result of the analyses, we may identify three phases of development of the Polgár complex cemeteries (Formenkreis 1=Tiszapolgár, Formenkreis 2=Tiszapolgár- Bodrogkeresztúr, Formenkreis 3=Bodrogkeresztúr, with the features of the ceramics from Hunyadihalom). Thus, the two groups that had been differentiated so by their ceramics (Tiszapolgár and Bodrogkeresztúr), in fact existed in the same time period and in geographical proximity.
