The availability of ancient DNA information now makes it possible to distinguish the relative importance of local innovations that occur in the course of vertical cultural transmission from those that are introduced from somewhere else as a result of horizontal transmission. Discussions of this topic have perhaps inevitably been linked to long-standing discussions of culture history, especially in Europe, and of diffusion versus cultural evolution. The talk will review some these discussions in the light of recent work and introduce the ERC -funded COREX project and its BIAD database that is currently being developed.
