Place names dating from the stone age?
Is this a hypothesis or how can they tell an absolute age for a place name? An interesting find. Where may I read more?Clarifer
- Those structures have nothing to do with dolmens, and they have been re-dated to the Pre-Roman Iron Age. Earlier they were associated with Jäkärlä group, but this is not accepted anymore. 188.8.131.52 13:58, 20 September 2006 (UTC)
Shoulden´t the main article name be Comb Ceramic Culture and the redirect be "Pit-Comb Ware culture", instead of the other way around? Is this realy the most common name fore the culture in english? --MiCkEdb 14:30, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
- A quick googling suggests you may be right. However, I don't know if they are the same thing or if one is a subcategory of the other. Anyone? Clarifer 12:54, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
- I haven't even heard the expression "Pit-Comb Ware culture" before (although that doesn't have to mean anything, I work mostly with the Swedish Stone Age, and in swedish)... Anyway I'll try to move it back to the original name then. --MiCkEdb 17:20, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
Language and Comb Ceramic culture
Heh,hee, an interesting article trying to prove than Comb Ceramic culture was an INDO EUROPEAN CULTURE. Pure nonsense. It existed just in the area which was inhabited by NON Indo European Finno Ugrian peoples. This opinion is shared by most of the seriously taken Finnish and other Finno Ugrian researchers. The language spoken in the area may be (correctly) called SUM UHRI or SUM and UHRI proto languages with its northern variant SAM by Saame people. Both means Human (A Man). Just like AINU in Hokkaido and Southern Sahalin and INUIT (Eskimo) in Grönland and North America.
