The Western Globular Amphora culture is an integral component of a widespread
cultural complex, which occupies larger parts of Central and Eastern Europe at
the turn of the 4th to the 3rd millennium BC. The application of multivariate

one is a spatial and chronological differentiation. In addition to that, the
individual consideration of cultural contacts is held to be conducive to a
model for the emergence and expansion of the Western Globular Amphora culture.
