Abstract

My intention in this study is to break down the Neolithic Period into component parts, and state what the various German authorities propose in the case of each. Not only the works appearing during the prescribed decade will be consulted, but also those of the pre-1933 years. In each case these opinions compared to those of standard British and American and, at times, Scandinavian authorities. Deviations between these need not necessarily indicate that a falsification has taken place. Nevertheless, a unanimity of agreement in part of perhaps four different countries other than Germany would perhaps be important sign of it. In the final analysis, it will be necessary to follow the steps in reasoning used by the Germans in attaining their results.
