    Recommend a book to understand Bell Beakers etc.

    Could someone recommend a good book (maybe books) that would be good for someone who knows next to nothing about the Bell Beakers and other similar cultures that may have been involved with U152?
    Paternal Y-DNA: U152>L2>BY3508>L135>BY3506 Estimated age of BY3506: 500BC
    Most Distant Known Paternal Ancestor: Patrick Dillon, born around 1790 somewhere in Ireland (possibly County Mayo). Some of his descendants later moved to Manchester, England between the 1820s and 30s.

    Since ancient DNA has already shown that U152 and L2 were the major players in the Eastern Bell Beaker province, this is without the best paper on the topic (IMO):

    Heyd V. (2007) Families, Prestige Goods, Warriors & Complex Societies: Beaker Groups of the 3rd Millennium cal BC Along the Upper & Middle Danube. Proceedings of the Prehistoric Society 73, 2007, pp. 327-379
    https://www.academia.edu/1249549/_20...007_p._321-370

    As far as books go, this is the best collection of Bell Beaker papers, although its a little bit dated and very expensive:

    Bell Beakers Today: Pottery, People, Culture, Symbols in Prehistoric Europe
    https://www.amazon.com/Bell-Beakers-.../dp/888660243X

    And finally a more recent book:

    The Bell Beaker Transition in Europe: Mobility and local evolution during the 3rd millennium BC

    The index to Jean Manco's Blood of the Celts has 10 or so references to U152. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Blood-Celts...d+of+the+celts

    Thank you to both of you for those suggestions, I might start off with Blood of the Celts and then move on to R.Rocca's suggestions as Jean Manco's book looks a bit easier to follow for starting off.
