Article title

Szczątki ciałopalne z pierwszego sezonu badań archeologicznych na cmentarzysku z kręgami kamiennymi kultury wielbarskiej w Pławnie, stan. 11, pow. drawski


Title variants

Cremated remains recorded during the first season of archaeological research at the cemetery with stone circles at Pławno 11, Drawsko Pomorskie district

Languages of publication



Analysed human remains come from four cremation burials of the Wielbark culture, recorded during archaeological excavation at the barrow cemetery with stone circles at Pławno 11, Drawsko Pomorskie district, West Pomeranian Voivodeship. The aim of the bioarchaeological analysis was to describe the cremated remains with particular emphasis on a state of preservation, an impact of taphonomic processes and biological characteristics of the buried people.
