The funerary traditions in the Yamnaya cultural horizon (ca. 3400 - 2300 cal BC): development and differentiation

The purpose of this research is the study of the burial traditions of the Yamnaya cultural horizon, which present a complex differentiation and several regional variants. During the Early Bronze Age, the Yamnaya culture was widespread from the southern Urals to the Lower Danube. This project focuses on the establishment of a large database of the archaeological evidence, the application of multivariate statistics and GIS-based analyses, the development of new typological classification of the grave goods and the interpretation of the anthropological and radiocarbon data, in order to build a model for a better comprehension of the Yamnaya cultural horizon.
