About the book

The result of the synergy between four doctoral projects and an advanced MA-level course on Bronze Age Europe, this integrated assemblage of articles represents a variety of different subjects united by a single theme: movement. Ranging from theoretical discussion of the various responses to the reactions from the circulation of people, objects and ideas to the transmission of the spiral and the 'trade' in crafting expertise, this volume takes a fresh look at old questions.

Each article within this monograph represents a different approach to mobility framed within a highly mobile and dynamic period of European prehistory. In so doing, the text not only addresses transmission and reception, but also the conceptualization of mobility within a world which was literally Rooted in Movement.
