BURIALS OF THE BADEN CULTURE FROM VEĽKÝ ŠARIŠ AND THEIR IMPORTANCE FOR THE INVESTIGATION OF THE STUDIED CULTURE IN THE NORTHERN TISZA REGION
Languages of publication
We do not know burial customs of the Baden culture people in the territory of Eastern Slovakia. Unique cremation burials have been reported only from Veľký Slavkov and Spišské Tomášovce-Hadušovce. However, their find situations have not been explained or published. A part of the incomplete human skeleton comes from a settlement pit in Streda nad Bodrogom, but the place where the finds and anthropological remains from the feature are deposited is still unknown. This makes the unexpected find of at least one cremation burial of the Baden culture from Veľký Šariš even more valuable. It was documented and rescued during the investigation of the exterior of the St. Cunigunde’s chapel, which is a national monument from the late Gothic. Another group of vessels, without anthropological remains, comes from the supposed second Baden burial from the same site. The newly discovered finds from Veľký Šariš represent relics close to the oldest horizon of the Baden culture in Eastern Slovakia. On the basis of the analysis of the typological-chronological features of pottery, within relative chronology, they can be dated to stage Baden II at the latest.
