i remember reading in an encyclopaedia britannica during my teens, that there
was a reasonable fit between a proposed indo-european source culture with that
of a south-russian civilization of 3500 b.c., the so called kurgan culture.
what became of this speculation, or were there alterior, historical, motives
for postulating this fit?
