Abstract: The settlement of Racot 18 in the western Polish lowlands is used as a case study in the investigation of continued development and expansion following initial Neolithic beginnings, and in the formal chronological modelling, in a Bayesian framework, of settlement development. The site belongs to the Late Lengyel culture of the later fifth millennium cal BC, and represents the intake of new land following earlier initial colonisation. The formally estimated chronology for the settlement suggests spans for individual house biographies from as little as a generation to over a century; distinctive substantial buildings, from late in the sequence, may have lasted longest. Racot 18 is compared to its formally modelled context of the later fifth millennium cal BC.
