Dont know if I'm old enough, but I did find some references to the
Lake cultures, the "Bell Beaker" people, and "Battle Ax" culture.
There is a real good writeup in "People of the Stone Age", American
Museum of Natural History. I believe the currrent thought is that
the Beaker and Battleax cultures were contemporaries with the lake
dwellers being somewhat earlier.
