The meetings of the most significant archaeological association of Europe, the European Association of Archaeologists (EAA), provide each year an outstanding opportunity for dialogues between scholars of various countries and backgrounds. At the 16th meeting, held in September 2010 in The Hague, The Netherlands, Volker Heyd, Gabriella Kulcsar and Vajk Szeverenyi organized a full-day conference session focusing on interregional contacts and social, economic and cultural change in the third millennium BC in and around the Carpathian Basin. This book was prepared based on the papers given at this session. The 13 articles of this volume, all written in English, discuss problems of transition and change from the Late Copper to the Early Bronze Age, that is more than a millennium from the later 4th to the end of the 3rd millennium BC. The book highlights temporal and spatial dynamics in the interregional interactions and communication networks among various societies of that period. Traditional typo-chronological approaches are supplemented by the results of absolute dating, anthropological and biochemical investigations and statistical analyses. Also new finds and materials are presented and new perspectives offered. The publication of the volume will certainly promote communication between the archaeological schools of western and east Central Europe, providing new aspects for future research as well. It will likewise contribute a great deal to our knowledge about the Carpathian Basin in the third millennium BC so important in bridging the prehistoric east and southeast to the west of the Continent.

Kupferzeitliche Äxte und Beile in Serbien

Author: Dragana Antonovič

Publisher: N.A

ISBN: 9783515109772

Category: Axes, Prehistoric

Vorgestellt werden über 400 - teilweise bisher unpublizierte - kupferne Beile, Äxte und Kleingeräte aus Serbien. Da bei der Auswahl der Funde das Herstellungsmaterial im Vordergrund stand, repräsentieren sie eine breite Zeitspanne, die bis zum Ende der Bronzezeit reicht. Der Schwerpunkt liegt auf der frühen Kupfertechnologie sowie ihrer Entwicklung von der prämetallurgischen Phase über die Vinďazeit bis ins Äneolithikum. Die Funde aus den Depots von Ploďnik belegen die typologische Nähe der frühen Kupferbeile zu den Steinbeilen des Neolithikums. Vergleichende Materialanalysen geben Informationen zur Herkunft des Rohmaterials der Kupfergeräte. Kupferzeitliche Bergwerke wie Rudna Glava werden vorgestellt und Werkzeuge dokumentiert, die beim Erzabbau Verwendung fanden. Sie lassen Rückschlüsse auf die vorgeschichtlichen Abbautechniken und Prospektionsmethoden zu. Funde und Befunde aus kupferverarbeitenden Siedlungen illustrieren den Beginn der technologischen Entwicklung.

Ethnische Interpretationen in der frühgeschichtlichen Archäologie

Geschichte, Grundlagen und Alternativen

This volume analyses previous attempts to delineate ethnic groupings with the help of archaeological finds. After a short review of the history of these interpretations, central concepts are examined (people, culture, race, language) and ethnological and sociological concepts of identity are adduced. Against this background, Brather undertakes a comparative description of the methodological problems of ethnic reconstructions for the period between the Iron Age and the Middle Ages, and contrasts them with interpretations from cultural, economic and social history as alternative approaches to an explanation which is closer to the sources. This structural historical analysis places the explanatory power of archaeological sources on a footing with those of literary texts.
