Manfred Woidich, "The Western Globular Amphora Culture. A New Model for its Emergence and Expansion", in: eTopoi. Journal for Ancient Studies, Volume 3 (2014), 67–85


The Western Globular Amphora culture is an integral component of a widespread cultural complex, which occupies larger parts of Central and Eastern Europe at the turn of the 4th to the 3rd millennium BC. The application of multivariate statistics and GIS-based analysis allowed for two results, of which the first one is a spatial and chronological differentiation. In addition to that, the individual consideration of cultural contacts is held to be conducive to a model for the emergence and expansion of the Western Globular Amphora culture.
