Making a Neolithic non-megalithic monument - Catalogue
Catalogue of a TRB burial ground at Dalfsen (the Netherlands), c. 3000-2750 cal. BC
Imprint: Sidestone Press
Until recently few non-megalithic burial grounds were known and the find of the Dalfsen burials created new opportunities to study the mortuary ritual in more detail. It sheds light on the social organization of local TRB communities in this part of the world. The results not only provide evidence for the existence of large multi-person burial mounds during the TRB-period, but also provide intriguing evidence of continuity from this period to the period of the Corded Ware culture – a transition now often interpreted in terms of migration.
This volume is a full catalogue of the site. It contains a detailed description of the graves and finds. A volume containing the interpretation of the burial ground is available separately.
