A new study of Campaniforme, a type of pottery characterised by richly decorated bell beakers which at the end of the Neolithic were spread throughout Europe and as far afield as Ireland and North Africa. Examining sites in central and southern France and a site in the west of Switzerland the study takes a new approach by abandoning typology, concentrating rather on techniques of production and materials used. Using the results Convertini proposes a model of expansion for the regions studied and attempts to both further understanding of the movements of indigenous groups at the end of the Neolithic and achieve a better chronology of Campaniforme.
