Wetman 2006[edit]

"LBK culture" (Linearbandkeramik) needs some introducing to the reader, not to register as jargon. There is no connection made as yet with Danubian culture—aren't they the same thing? --Wetman 06:22, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

Another thought: Atlantic period is a redirect here. A move would not be objected to, surely. --Wetman 22:02, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

Clean-up not challenge required[edit]

I just noticed this. I worked on this article earlier in my more inexperienced phase. Wikipedian editors have phases too. Since then someone has added some great sources but not in proper format. The material appears to be sound. I would say, what is required here is clean-up with the sources in a bibliography and notes. A quick check of the Internet also should turn up some interesting special articles. So don't hack the article up, please. Clean it up if you are able. If not leave it to someone who can. I can get to it but not immediately, as I am cleaning up Linear Pottery culture, which contains the material Wetman feels ought to be introduced.Dave 13:17, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

Never mind I cleaned it up after all, but if you have some interesting new research to relate or some details everyone ought to know then by all means go ahead. The Atlantic is an oft-referenced topic in the archaeology of Europe.Dave 21:50, 12 August 2007 (UTC)


The author of the Kul'kova entry has to define, what in fact he understands by "BP". If the data are based on Radiocarbon-methods, the original c-14-date MUST be given, in order to be able to correct the calibrations, which are regularly object to changes and updates. For historians, only the additional conversion into BC is helpful. An unspecified "BP" is nothing of both. HJJHolm (talk) 16:45, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
