Neolithic societies

Cultural turning points of the Neolithic societies in the Upper and Middle Rhine and the surrounding low mountain ranges are currently being examined in a series of inter-connected MA and doctoral dissertations at University Mainz. These landscape-based studies generate their own data set but also draw on data provided by the respective state archaeological services. The aim is to produce a standardized data-base with fine-grained chronological information for one of the most important Neolithic landscapes where influences from Eastern and Western Europe met.
