This study is focused on the issue of plant macro remains in early medieval graves in Kopčany. The main goal of the analysis is to address the question of the origin of carbonized seeds in graves and their relation to funeral rite context. Based on the detailed examination of the macro botanical remains, we may prove the origin of the seeds in graves as an evidence of various transformation processes. From the results of the analysis it is obvious that the graves which were situated closest to the settlement structures contain the highest number of carbonized seeds, while more distant graves contain only a minimum of macro remains. It is also evident that the samples from the skeleton’s surroundings areas are sterile, and the macro remains are found only in the upper layers of the grave pit filling.
