Analysis of Corded Ware Culture grave goods based on an inhumation burial from Nieborowa site in the Lublin Polesye region
Languages of publication
The article presents an analysis of grave goods from a Corded Ware Culture burial dis-covered on the Nieborowa I site in central-eastern Poland. A functional analysis of flint objects indicated the presence of seven arrowheads, a side-scraper and fire flint among the grave goods. The arrowheads were not used as points; three of them bore traces of mounting. They were found in one spot, suggesting that they had been placed in the grave in a container of some kind (quiver ?). The mounting traces were not too strong or were absent altogether, thus the arrowheads could well have been placed in a container other than a quiver (bag?). Traces observed on the edges of one of the examined flint objects demonstrated its function as a fire flint. The side-scraper was used for work on a hard material. The observed similarities of the flint tool set placed as grave goods in burials of males of Corded Ware Culture and the observed traces of use on these tools point to a strictly defined set of rules governing burial rites in this cultural phase.
