British Bronze Age / Ancient History Documentary
How did people live in the Bronze Age? In this film you can learn about the Bell Beaker folk who came to Britain around 2500 BC and brought metallurgy skills with them - they were first to work gold, tin or copper in Britain and they were the first to trade valuable foreign goods such as glass beads from the Mediterranean and Amber jewellery from the Baltic.
The British Beaker folk has strong genetic ties to the Beaker folk of the lower Rhine in Holland who were themselves related to the people of the Single Grave Culture - a variant of the Corded Ware culture which was evidently the source of most of the subsequent Indo-European cultures of the world. Genetics and archaeology show how the Bell Beaker and Corded Ware people were related to the Proto-Indo-European Yamnaya people of the Russian steppes - and how the Neolithic Kurgan burial mounds from Russia were the model for the early round barrows that the Bell Beaker folk of the Wessex culture in England built for their dead. I look at the amazing finds from such burial mounds in England - mainly the rich hoards from the graves near Stonehenge, which are kept in the Wiltshire museum in Devizes. This video also shows the connection of Bronze Age Britain to the Battle Axe culture of Scandinavia via the Amber trade routes.
