The LPC in Bade-Wurttemberg

First research concerning the LPC in Bade-Wurttemberg was achieved by K. Eckerle (1963) and H.-P. Kraft (1977). However, they dealt only with the LPC in the Baden part of Franconia and the regions around the mouth of the river Neckar. Today’s classification of the LPC in all of Bade-Wurttemberg goes back to H.-Chr. Strien (Strien 2000). His research is based on the analysis of the pottery from few large-scale excavations (e. g. Ulm-Eggingen, Gerlingen; Kind 1989; Neth 1999), the cemetery of Stuttgart-Mühlhausen, the common grave of Talheim and further, unpublished material. He divided the LPC into nine phases (1, 2A, 2B, 3-8). This very detailed classification starts with the sparse material from the oldest phase of the LPC and ends with a decoration made up of bands filled spaciously with impressions in phase 7 resp. a decoration made up just of impressions in phase 8.
