I just registered recently so I haven't pored over everything there is to offer here, so please forgive me if I am asking a dumb question. I'm continuing to look around and I must say, this forum has a huge amount of information about European history and languages (I know a bit about the former and very little about the latter).

So, on to the point.

I'm researching cultures around the Mediterranean, Europe, the UK, the Caucasus and the Middle East and I'm using the year 1500 BC as a reference point. I'm trying to gather as much data as I can about the cultures that lived in these areas, what they were like, customs, religion, economics and so on. I already have plenty of information on the more well-known cultures (in Egypt, Crete, Greece, Anatolia, Mesopotamia) but the bulk of Europe, with references to "Tumulus cultures" and "Proto-Celtic" and so on... I am having a hard time finding data on these.

I figure somewhere in the forum are some helpful posts. Can you folks help me and point me in the right direction?

Thank you

Welcome to Eupedia moogspaceport.
Look at the right hand side of forum page, there is a small "search" box. Just type in "bronze-age" etc one subject at a time and it will bring up some posts regarding the specific topic. Good luck :)
