Das dialektische Verhältnis von Schnurkeramik und Glockenbecher zwischen Rhein und Saale

Keywords Schnurkeramik, Glockenbecker, Rhein, Saal, 3rd Mil. BC

The cord Ceramic phenomenon and the Bell Beaker phenomenon are widespread phenomena of the third millennium BC. In large part, they close out spatially. For Central Europe, however, can be detected individual regions where the support of both phenomena have been established in close proximity to each other. These include the Upper / Middle Rhine and the Thüringen / Burgenlandkreis region. These regions have been analyzed in this thesis with the aim to detect the dialectic and against term relationship between the Corded Ware phenomenon and the Bell Beaker phenomenon. Remuneration and interactions can be, among other things with regard to the grave goods and in the field of sign systems, which in particular include decorating motifs notice. Here it is clear that common elements occur in particular when a spatial and temporal proximity of these phenomena is given. Individual burials, which can then assign not one or the other material culture, overcoming this dichotomy of Corded Ware and Bell Beaker and are as hybrid identities to be considered. In addition, be examined in the present volume Schnurkeramik- and Glockenbecher inventories by scientific methods with regard to their chorological and chronological development. As a result, are new and enhanced Typochronologien and - based on that - changing space Fund principles and style groups within the Upper / Middle Rhine and the Thüringen / Burgenlandkreis region.
