Trypillian culture is the culture of the Neolithic people identified on the territory of modern Ukraine, Moldova, and Romania, which existed between 5400 BC and 2700 BC. The name derives from the village of Trypillia (Трипiлля) near Kiev, Ukraine, where it was discovered by archeologists in 1897. It is sometimes referred to as Tripolian culture, from the Russian version of the name: Триполье (Tripolye).
As of 2003, about 2000 sites of Trypillian culture have been identified.
