About the author: Leo Frobenius (1873 – 1938) was a German ethnologist and archaeologist, one of the leading experts on prehistoric art. He was also one of the initiators of the culture-historical approach to ethnology. Frobenius introduced the term Kulturkreis (culture circle) to describe the area of influence of a particular culture over other cultures. This idea was based on the concept of cultural diffusion as the method by which elements of a culture, both material things and in the form of ideas and customs, spread from their point of origin to more distant human societies.
