Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
In this study the author discusses the typo-chronological correlation of ceramic production of a conventional 'Late Copper Age' 'Boleraz/Baden'-type settlement excavated at Balatonőszöd–Temetői dűlő (Zala region, western Hungary). By assessing the ceramic vessels and sherds, which came to light in large numbers, the excavator establishes a typological system for the settlement and correlates it with known Boleraz and Baden classification systems. Overall the study reassesses the relative and absolute chronological problems of the Late Copper Age and the Early Bronze Age in modern-day Hungary and suggest a new typo-chronological system based on the excavation at Balatonőszöd–Temetői dűlő. In addition, the research also supplements the typological and settlement historical results already known from the site with other dating methods, such as thermoluminscence/optical luminescence.
