What evidence is there for trade with Mycenaea? --Yak 19:17, 10 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Hi Yak. Weren't some of their swords found in Mycenaean shaft graves, possibly by Schliemann? The presence of the amber trade route and the Mycenaeans' thirst for quality metal made me think it was correct. My memory is hazy however and the only source I can find (outside of a dodgy Aryran website) is my increasingly outdated Dictionary of Archaeology. adamsan 20:32, 10 Aug 2004 (UTC)
Shaft Graves: Circle A at Mycenae is normally dated 1600-1500 B.C., Circle B 1650-1550 B.C., some have it as 1600-1500 B.C – that is later than Unetice.
The Graves do include Baltic amber, but they are contemporary with the early tumulus period (Wietenberg, Otomani, Vatin, Vatya, Mad'arovce etc.) Cultural Influences – and the gold - point to Roumania, not the West. Swords: Minoan or Levantine. Took me a while to clarify, there's an odd mixture of arguments based on pre-14C and uncalibrated 14C-dates. --Yak 22:10, 18 Aug 2004 (UTC)

How is Únêtice pronounced?-Rychach 18:39, 27 May 2006 (UTC)


Currently there is nothing said about the hypotheses concerning the origins and linguistic composition of the Únětice people, just as is done in the article on the Beaker people. In this site, I encountered the view that they were a Proto-Celtic people, a view that may be based on evidence, but this specific source is unreferenced. Is anyone here able to provide scholarly sources on this matter and incorporate it in the article? Omnipedian (talk) 13:39, 14 October 2008 (UTC)


Dear Yopie, you do not need me to prove, just go to Google and Google Books and enter "Aunjetitz culture", select preferences Only English Results, you will get all the references you need. The need to redirect to Unetice culture already demonstrates a need for explication. The book that brought my attention was published in 2010, by Oxbow Books, Oxford, in English.

Move to Únětice culture?[edit]

Is there any reason this article shouldn't be at Únětice culture, with a redirect back from Unetice culture? (It's spelled as "Únětice culture" in at least some English-language sources, e.g. Aldona Bieniek and Petr Pokorný (2005) "A new find of macrofossils of feather grass (Stipa) in an Early Bronze Age storage pit at Vliněves, Czech Republic" in Vegetation History and Archaeobotany 14:4.)
