This is the first major synthesis of the TRB (Trichterrandbecher - funnel-necked beaker) culture, one of the most extensive cultural patterns in the European prehistory of the 4th and 3rd millennia BC. The TRB culture covers a vast geographical area stretching from South East Poland to the Netherlands, and from Southern Scandinavia to Bohemia and Moravia. Consequently, it presents enormous difficulties to scholars trying to build an overall picture of the culture and its significance: difficulties of language, of the scale of the subject and of the amount of material to be assimilated and assessed. In this book, Magdalena Midgley manages the impressive task of bringing together evidence from the whole North European Plain, including new material published in German, Danish, Dutch, Polish and Russian. It gives the student and the professional archaeologist an up-to-date guide to the basic subject matter from an international perspective, as well as offering an evaluation of the views of other scholars whose findings are not available in English.
