Kurgan Studies: An environmental and archaeological multiproxy study of burial mounds in the Eurasian steppe zoneÁkos Pető and Attila Barczi 2011 © BAR Publishing
This volume presents a series of archaeological and scientific studies focusing on Kurgans in Hungary and Russia. Kurgans are the burial mounds of Bronze and Copper Age societies that can be traced back to the 4th Millennium cal BC. The Kurgans of the Eurasian steppe zone preserve palaeosoils and represent a fantastic resource for investigating Holocene environmental changes. The studies presented in this volume principally focus on the Lyukas-halom and Csípő-halom kurgans in Hungary and the Skvortsovsky and Labazovsky kurgans in Russia, though there are also several papers that explore the 'wider world' of the Kurgans. On the whole, this volume brings together papers on a multi- and interdisciplinary scale, and sheds light on the current status and state-of-art of kurgan studies.
