Dwelling in the settlement from the period of Avar Kaganate in Nové Zámky
Languages of publication
More than 200 settlement objects were explored from the period of Avar Kaganate during the three research stages in Nové Zámky settlement, Dolný Piritov site (Nové Zámky II). The paper deals with the characterisation of one dwelling explored in the settlement. It is a sunken earth-house of a rectangular shape, having clay stove with sunken bottom in the corner. The fragments of ceramics and burnt parts of cupola, being subject of the analytical part of the study, were found in its filling. The heating equipment differs from the other ones known from the territory of the Avar Kaganate not only by its being sunk under the floor level, but also by the fact that its cupola was not sunk to the clay block, but was built independently. Without a detailed evaluation of the whole discovery fund from the settlement, a more detailed dating of the object is not possible. The dating of the excavation site as a whole and its ranking into cultural and civilisation sphere of the Avar Kaganate are proved by the fragments of roasting bells, shards from the so called yellow ceramics and sporadic shards from the so called grey ceramics.
