Archaeology
A late Neolithic and early Bronze Age European people (circa 2700–1700 bc), named after distinctive waisted pots ( Beaker ware) that were associated with their burials and appear to have been used for alcoholic drinks. It is now thought that the Beaker folk were not a separate race, but that the use of such pots spread as a result of migration, trade, and fashion.
