Building a network of contacts

Got some great new contacts and found some interesting archaeological articles on the internet today :).  Dr. Ilze B. Loze from Latvia should be able to help me with my upcoming article about the anthropomorphic clay figurines (thanks to Mag. hist.  Inna Rozentāle department of archaeology at the university of Latvia).  I also started thinking and writing about the amber trade in the neolithic in connection with the figurines, even though it´s nothing more than a wild guess at the moment it seems like a trail worth following when thinking of the broader picture of circumbaltic contacts in the neolithic. Great day!

Purciems White Dune in Latvia were some interesting anthropomorphic figurines have been found.

Link to an interesting article on the topic of ornamentation of figurines (in french):
