DFG-Science-TV.png How and why did the first monuments first appear in Northern Germany? Which part did economic developments play? What influence did the climate have? Which societies developed what for their social space? Which social differences are apparent? How and why did the funnel beaker societies end? These and many others are the questions that have been investigated since 2009 in the priority program (SPP 1400) at the institute. The program was partly filmed and the resulting 3-4 mins clips were published on the DFG Science TV projects page.
