The archaeological site of Vučedol, located on the bank of the Danube near Vukovar, has been continually inhabited and is one of the most important archaeological sites in Croatia. Due to the value of its findings, it has given its name to an entire Eneolithic culture, and is the originating point of that culture. Vučedol was a settlement of farmers, cattle-breeders, hunters and coppersmiths, whose 'golden age' was from 3000 to 2200 B.C. The 'Vučedol Dove' was found in Vučedol in 1938.
