Abstract

The question of the relationships between the Corded Ware culture and the Bell Beaker phenomenon has been debated at length: continuity, convergence, contact,... While arguments traditionally focus on ceramic typology or absolute chronology, we will pay more attention here to the isomorphisms that tie together the ways of cultural functioning of these two 3rd millennium BC archaeological complexes. The Bell Beaker phenomenon is characterized by a large geographical distribution and by its relative homogeneity, especially perceptible in the field of mortuary practices, two congruent features globally absent in the various substrata, except for the Corded Ware culture. From this point of view, the latter appears as the sole conceivable cultural prototype for the Bell Beaker phenomenon.
