Middle Bronze Age settlement structures in the street Mostná ulica in Nitra
Languages of publication
Nitra and its immediate surroundings were intensively settled during the entire Bronze Age. In the Early Bronze Age a fortified settlement existed on the castle hill, which had a significant position in the area of the middle Nitra basin. At the beginning of the Middle Bronze Age, after the hill fort on the castle hill disappeared, the settlement moved to the area below the castle (Fig. 1), where a larger settlement is assumed to have existed. Finds from the beginning of the Middle Bronze Age, especially pottery, were collected during all excavation seasons on Mostná street (1990-2009). In 2004, a section with structures and a part of a palisade was found, which on the basis of pottery can be dated to the beginning of the Middle Bronze Age, BB1 stage. These finds are presented in this study. Vessel shapes include amphorae, amphora vases, pots, jugs, bowls, cups and food containers, which belong to the final stage of the Maďarovce culture and the early Carpathian tumulus culture. New features occur as a result of permeating foreign cultural groups. These features are common for the entire area of the Carpathian basin. Eastern influences are related to the Otomani culture, which likely affected also the occurrence of the Suciu de Sus culture.
