The salvage archaeological excavations were realised at Janko Kráľ square in Zlaté Moravce. Traces of prehistoric settlement (the Neolithic) were found together with a modern cemetery and a settlement object. In the Object 1 fragments of glass bottle-shaped vessels, legged bowls and small vessels from the 17th century were revealed. At the cemetery 17 graves have been documented that sketched a modern society picture. The grave 12A with burial of a young woman included a bonnet originally embroidered with small glass beads of blue, white, green and yellow colours. The bonnet probably represents a national costume from the turn of 17th and 18th cent. A bronze welt that had made the bonnet fixed preserved also fragments of fabric and tapes from its skeleton. The high-quality glass and beads shapes are documenting advanced technology of glass products of this type. In spite of its small extent, the salvage excavation in Zlaté Moravce has brought results that enriched recent knowledge of life at the Zlaté Moravce site in the incipient modern era.
