Description

Looking at the Funnel-necked Beaker culture (Trichterbecherkultur or TRB), which represents the earliest Neolithic manifestation in northern Europe, this book examines whether the concept of a culture complex covering half a million square kilometers can still be justified as a working concept. It assembles evidence from the the whole of the North European plain, offering students and professional archaeologists a synthesis of the TRB culture.show more
