The Excel-Sheet contains information (location of the site, chronological position, type of site, archaeological culture, literature, photographies and drawings, analysis made, results of the analysis, etc.) about the samples taken in the Volkswagen Fond Project no. 90 216 "Early mounted nomads and their vessels Ceramic analysis project aimed at supporting the reconstruction of socio-economic conditions in mobile populations north of the Black Sea between 1100 and 600 BC".
The project itself focuses on contacts and interactions between groups with different material culture remains in two vegetation zones to the north of the Black Sea.The investigation takes a complex archaeometric approach to characterise the pottery of communities that lived in the forest steppe zone and steppe zone to the north of the Black Sea between the Dniester and Dnieper rivers between 1100 and 600 BC. By using an multidisciplinary approach to study the material culture of these communities with mobile lifeways, this project will allow the comparison of the natural science and archaeological data for the first time.
The Excel-Sheet presents the results of various analyses performed during the project and serves as the database for publications of the project members.
