Late Neolithic communities of the later 2nd millennium bc occupying the Vistula, Oder, and Bug river systems in north central Europe. They are distinguished by their bulbous pots with a narrow neck and perforated lugs or small handles for suspension. Cord‐impressed decoration is usual. Burial is in single graves, usually with a stone‐lined cist. Grave goods include their distinctive pots and also axes made from banded flint obtained from the Holy Cross Mountains. The Globular Amphora Culture is contemporary with the Corded Ware Culture and the Single Grave Culture.
