GRAVES OF THE CORDED WARE CULTURE AT THE MULTICULTURAL SITE 6 IN PELCZYSKA, DISTRICT OF PINCZOW
Languages of publication
Five graves of Corded Ware culture at Pelczyska were discovered during excavations carried out by an expedition from the Institute of Archaeology at the Warsaw University, headed by Marcin Rudnicki. The features have yielded inventory typical of Corded Ware finds from western Malopolska. On the basis of the grave goods, features 21/2004, 32/2002 and 50/2002 should be linked with phase II (or perhaps subphase IIIA) of the mentioned culture, i.e. with the older period of the Krakow-Sandomierz group. Features 50/2004 and 54/2004, containing flowerpot-shaped beakers, seem to be related to the younger horizon of this group. The arrangement of the niche graves suggests that they surrounded a circular mound (which wasn't discovered). Site 6 in Pelczyska proves to be of much interest, due both to its stratigraphic arrangement and its grave inventories.
