In the middle Neolithic, in the transition from MN A to B, we start to see the material remains of a group of people, who despite the existence of a well established agrarian economy chose to base their livelihood primarily on hunting, fishing and gathering – the Pitted Ware people. The occurrence of the Pitted Ware Complex in south Scandinavia may, in my opinion, be sought in cultural contacts and the increased agrarian focus that took place in the Funnel Beaker society. Through exchange-networks mainly based on the distribution of flint, the north-eastern parts of Denmark was brought in contact with Pitted Ware people on the Scandinavian Peninsula and thereby gained a knowledge of another world and another lifestyle. After the ritualized and strictly controlled middle Funnel Beaker-period, the development went in two directions: towards an increased agrarian focus including emphasis on cattle husbandry, which in some parts of Jutland resulted in the appearance of Single Grave communities, and in the north-eastern parts of the country, the Pitted Ware way of life. The Pitted Ware Complex in Denmark can best be understood as a development of local Funnel Beaker-groups which in various degrees obtained and used new kinds of artefacts, practiced a different and old-fashioned economy and thereby created their own identity and their own version of the Pitted Ware World.
