Workshop: Archéologie et Gobelets

Between 17th and 21st of May 2017 the CRC-1266 ‘Scales of Transformation’ and Graduate School ‘Human Development in Landscapes’ will jointly organise the workshop Archéologie et Gobelets in Kiel, titled:

“Think Global, Act Local! The Transformation of Spatial Interaction and Material Culture in Beaker Contexts of the 3rd Millennium BC in Europe”.

The 3rd millennium BC in Europe is a period showing a new quality in the transregional distribution of material culture. What is more, there is a more marked duality between the fragmented pattern of local styles and the new overarching trans-regional elements of material culture, most notably expressed in archaeological terms by the Bell Beaker and Corded Ware phenomena. Such a duality, especially marked by the concept of Bell Beakers and ”Common Ware”, is surely not a total novelty. But the hitherto unknown width of distribution of „global" Corded Ware, or Bell Beaker elements is evidence of a new character of this dialectic in the 3rd millennium BC.

In this workshop, we want to explore the background of this new quality.

Registration at the Institute of Pre- and Protohistoric Archaeology at Kiel University, Johanna-Mestorf-Str. 2-6
