Frühe Monumentalität und Soziale Differenzierung Bd.14

Kommunikationsstrukturen mittelneolithischer Gesellschaften im nordmitteleuropäischen Tiefland

More than 100 years of research and publication on megalithic tombs in north-central Europe have resulted in a comprehensive material base, presented in a single report and typological study, which has been standardized in the presented dissertation: 22900 artifacts from 1582 sites, including 4357 ceramic vessels.
The author succeeds in proposing regional typochronological structures and in postulating spatial trends for northern Germany. Funnel-pottery grave ceramics are analyzed by means of statistical analysis for questions on the interaction and communication of local and regional groups. From this the author develops a model that shows a typological trend from west to the north and northeast.
