Some papers contained in a book 'Idea megalityczna w obrzadku pogrzebowym kultury pucharów lejkowatych' (The Megalithic Idea in Funeral Rites of the Funnelbeaker Culture) (Lublin-Kraków 2006) edited by Jerzy Libera and Krzysztof Tunia are the subject of reflections. The author critically assesses the conception of research on the long barrows which dominates the book. In conclusion, he postulates broadening of researches on the megalithic idea by new approaches (inter alia from the point of view of landscape archaeology), which can give new meanings and understanding of tombs and Neolithic communities in the Polish lands.
