Traditon, Technology and Communication Structures of the Funnel Beaker Culture Pottery Craft

Pottery analysis provides information about chronology and cultural networking between different settlement areas. Vessel forms and decoration are therefore traditionally paid much attention in archaeological research but the technology is usually considered only cursorily, despite the fact that an analysis of the technological aspects often yields important information about communication patterns.

The purpose of the project is to obtain information about the techniques used by different regional TBK groups in order to be able to identify structural contacts between the craft traditions practised in the various settlement areas. Comparative scientific analyses of TBK pottery fragments are therefore being carried out.
