TL;DR: The authors revisited the language/farming dispersal hypothesis for the distribution of the Indo-European languages, taking into account recent work in historical linguistics in the field of convergence theory, and recent re-evaluations concerning the place of the Anatolian languages within the Indo European family.
Abstract: In this paper the language/farming dispersal hypothesis for the distribution of the Indo-European languages is revisited, taking into account recent work in historical linguistics in the field of convergence theory, and recent re-evaluations concerning the place of the Anatolian languages within the Indo-European family. The importance of time depth within Proto-Indo-European is stressed, and the possibilities of regions where a real convergence will have taken place is underlined. It is proposed that one such convergence area during the later neolithic and chalcolithic periods was the region originally defined by Marija Gimbutas as 'Old Europe', although she would not have been happy with the proposal that this represents already a developped phase of Proto-Indo-European. An outline of the internal relationships among the subfamilies of the Indo-European language family is offered, on the basis of the historical scenario adopted. It is suggested that this view may conform more effectively with the family relationships within Indo-European than have earlier proposals

TL;DR: In this paper, a detailed re-analysis of the available data and presents some new perspectives on the Qiemu'erqieke sites, their chronology and external parallels.
Abstract: Excavation of the Qiemu'erqieke cemeteries in the 1960s revealed the earliest known Bronze Age culture in northern Xinjiang. Burial practices and grave goods show important connections to the Eurasian steppes. The sites have never been fully published and there has been much speculation about the exact nature of the Qiemu'erqieke finds. This paper sets out a highly detailed re-analysis of the available data and presents some new perspectives on the sites, their chronology and external parallels.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors present an approach des temoins archeologiques au probleme du territoire d'origine des indo-europeens, i.e., les cultures neolithiques anatoliennes et europeennes.
Abstract: L'apport des temoins archeologiques au probleme du territoire d'origine des indo-europeens. Les cultures neolithiques anatoliennes et europeennes ne sont pas proto-indo-europeennes. Les donnees archeologiques ne confortent pas l'hypothese d'un mouvement du Sud vers le Nord a travers le Caucase. Le territoire de la culture des Kourganes semble avoir forme un territoire d'origine secondaire, l'origine primaire etant les steppes d'Asie Centrale
