"This volume, the fourth of the ‘Yamnaya Impact on Prehistoric Europe’ Series, represents the proceedings of the session #196 No man travels alone, he takes himself along: Yamnaya transmission and/or transformation during the 3rd millennium BC Europe held at the Budapest EAA Virtual Meeting in 2020. The session was co-organised by the editors of this volume together with colleagues Todor Valchev from the Yambol Regional Historical Museum (Bulgaria) and Piotr Włodarczak from the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnology of the Cracow branch of the Polish Academy of Sciences (Poland). The session aimed to focus on archaeological approaches to material culture and ritual practices to explore how steppe transmissions unfolded during the 3rd millennium BC. The volume presents the work of 25 researchers from various European countries, Japan, and the United States, united in 11 articles. The themes discussed cover a large portion of the European continent, from the Lower Don steppes in the east to Northern Central Europe in the west, and a time span of approximately two millennia. The research presented opens new perspectives on micro-regional traits, regional particularities, and supra-regional complexities of steppe transmissions in the 4th and 3rd millennia BC."
