Metallurgy, peat zone finds and changes in the environment This volume focuses on defensive structures from the Early 2nd millennium BC located in the wide Belt covering the Central European Plain and the Aegean, with an emphasis on the former area. The beginning of the 2nd millennium BC forms a turning point in Europe's history. In the continent's central and western parts, Early Bronze Age societies began to emerge. In terms of social organization, it was radically different from the Final Neolithic and Eneolithic/Chalcolithic. The introduction of meta (bronze) was related to the emergence of a new type of society characterized by deeper inner stratification, rise of stable hierarchies, development of far-reaching contacts, and new religious trends. A similar turning point is observed in the Aegean in the first half of the 2nd millennium BC when the first civilization developed on the European mainland. The Myceanum culture rose to prominence and overshadowed the Minoans who had dominated the region earlier. The changes in societies in both regions triggered the proliferation of defensive structures. This volume shows the abundance of defensive settlement forms in individual regions and determines their basic technical, cultural, socio-political, and economic characteristics. New/No Jacket.
