  • Archéologie

vase sacré, qui ressemble à une cloche renversée, d'où le nom de campaniforme que lui ont donné les archéologues espagnols, qu'ils (les gens de la civilisation des gobelets campaniformes) déposeront dans leurs tombes et dans les monuments mégalithiques à travers toute l'Europe.


Campaniforme se dit d'une céramique caractérisée par un gobelet en forme de cloche renversée, dit aussi "gobelet caliciforme."
