Even that the Bell beaker culture plays the important role in the Late Aeneolithic and Early Bronze ages, and the Moravian inventory of that period is extremely reach (ca. 750 sites, 1000 burials), a general information sumarizing the archeological and anthropological inventories is still not available. Therefore, the goal of the project is to collect the basic data from the Bell beaker culture cemeteries in the region. The result of proposed multidisciplinary cooperation of archaeology, anthropology, lithic technology and petrography will be summarized in a common catalogue. In the proposed project we will follow the methods which have been used for studies of similar culture complexes. We suppose that this amount of information will be published as a monograph with catalogue of cemeteries and sites. In the long term perspective, the project will create a good conditions of the next detail research of Aeneolithic/Bronze Age Transition.
