Glass beads and glass remains from Germanic cremation burial ground in Veľký Cetín
Languages of publication
Glass beads and remains of glass vessels were discovered at the Germanic cremation burial ground in Veľký Cetín that was dated to the Roman period (the 2nd/3rd or 4th century AD). In Veľký Cetín, the beads were found in ten graves mostly one bead at the grave. In the glass beads assemblage blue ones are prevailing, green beads were found in two graves, three beads together and two white significantly burnt beads were in two graves too. As their shapes are concerned, we have divided the beads from the burial ground in Cetín according to M. Tempelmann-Maczyńska´s typology. Except of several characteristic types, beads cannot indicate a grave chronology more precisely. Only when reliably datable artefacts are absent, beads can help dating a grave inventory in outline. Globular beads are the most numerous. Apart from the glass beads, fragment of a glass vessel, a disc-shaped bottom with reinforced ring-shaped rim made of greenish glass and a glass disc-shaped artefact made of violet translucent glass - so-called calculi, a playing stone (collection) were discovered at the burial ground. Some graves included glass remains, often shapeless.
