The article presents the results of archaeological research of cemetery from the 11th – 12th century on the south-eastern hillock of the Devín castle. The first research was carried out here by I. L. Červinka (in 1921), and continued by J. Eisner (from 1933 to 1937), and later by V. Plachá and J. Hlavicová (from 1980 to 1987). During the explorations over 600 graves were unearthed, with the prevailing E-W orientation. Above some graves stone grave boards were found. Inventory consisted mainly of jewellery and parts of clothing. Some graves could be dated through the finds of coins (Ladislas I., Koloman, Solomon). Jewellery was dominated by the s-shaped earrings, mostly massive, in some case with longitudinally ribbed loop. Another type consisted of rings – simple rings made of wire, of stick, stripped, as well as earrings with a plate, eye and with dug out decoration in the form of signs. The four graves contained necklaces from corals made of precious stones (fluorite, carnelian), as well as amber and glass corals. The preserved parts of clothing included buckles from a belt of a circular shape. In three graves the iron knives were found. In a grave of the squatted from the beginning of the 13th century there was also a ceramic vessel containing animal bones, and one incomplete vessel also coming from a grave from the second half of the 10th century. Both graves were situated outside cemetery. The stone foundations of a rotund, probably built in the 11th century, were unearthed in the cemetery. The 13th century saw burials already at the Church of St. Cross in a town of Devín, whose oldest core is dated to the mid-13th century.
