The Tumulus culture dominated Central Europe during the Middle Bronze Age (ca. 1600 BC to 1200 BC).
It was the descendant of the Unetice culture. Its heartland the area previously occupied by the Unetice culture besides Bavaria and Württemberg. It was succeeded by the Late Bronze Age Urnfield culture.
As the name implies, the Tumulus culture is distinguished by the practice of burying the dead beneath burial mounds (tumuli).
