The societies of the Globular Amphora culture (GAC) in eastern Europe have already been discussed in one of the previous volumes of the Baltic-Pontic Studies (4). The papers included in it presented new Globular Amphora culture assemblages and new information categories (in particular, new radiocarbon dates). This volume gives a full description of source material foundations relating to the presence of GAC populations in eastern Europe, from the Baltic coast in the north to the Black Sea in the south and the Dnieper-Dvina line in the east. The sources were subjected to extensive analytical procedures whose ultimate result is a new presentation of the temporal and spatial parameters of the development of GAC population settlement in eastern Europe. Of special interest is a detailed description of the cultural environments in which the settlement appeared as well the cultural processes in which GAC societies took part. Consequently, this book touches upon a number of controversial issues in the prehistory of the borderland between western and eastern Europe. We intend to continue this line of investigations in one of the next volumes focusing especially on the questions of social transformations characteristic of the 3rd millennium BC in the area of interest to us that need to be dealt anew.
