Settlement and funerary microstructures in the studies on prehistoric societies. The case of Tarnobrzeg Lusatian Culture
Languages of publication
The present paper presents a microstructural analysis of cemeteries and settlements. With regard to cemeteries, the paper examines individual graves and their clusters and with regard to settlements the paper focuses on settlement features. Based on selected sources the article offers an interpretative model and concludes with a microregional analysis in which the mutual relationship between settlements and cemeteries has been examined. The cases explored herewith and the results achieved in the course of analysis allow for the supposition that studies on settlement and funerary microstructures are a basic method for revealing the characteristics of the lowest social strata, i.e. the family and microregional group (understood as members of a particular socjety who buried their dead at a nearby cemetery).
