The authors of the scientific article evaluated 12 weapons from 10 graves within the early medieval cemetery of Ivanka pri Dunaji-Farkasek and tried to understand their role and dating in a wider context. They can be divided into 7 axe heads, 4 heads of thrusting pole arms and one sword. Their forms were typical for Great Moravian weaponry and partially kept the Avar Period traditions as well. In relation to the typological and chronological evaluation of the weapons, the burials of the deceased individuals at the examined part of the cemetery might have started even around the middle of the 9th century, or in the first half of the 9th century yet. On the one hand the depositions of weapons in graves of the deceased men were connected with the usual early medieval funerary practices. But on the other hand these men could also have represented regional servants of a superior authority in the eastern part of the Bratislava Gate and/or also sentinels of the terrestrial routes, crossroads and crossings over the local rivers or streams in the area to the south of the Jurský Šúr swamp.
