Article
Evidence of gold processing in the fortified site of Bruszczewo (Poland) is the first testimony of the production of gold artefacts in a domestic Early Bronze Age site of Central Europe. This paper highlights the potential of macrolithic tool ensembles as a key element for the recognition of metallurgical work processes. Moreover, it presents an op...

Along with age, gender has been, and continues to be, an important category structuring societies all over the world, affecting access to resources, activities and the division of labour, as well as the social roles of individuals. However, the extent to which gender impacts upon opportunities for decision-making, self-determination and building on...
Article
The ceramic variability of fine ware pottery in Early and Middle Bronze Age Carpathian Basin (2600/2500–1500/1450 BCE) has been used as an argument for the existence of distinct, large-scale communities. The recent technological studies of coarse ware ceramics have shown that different stylistic groups are characterized by uniform technological tra...

Investigations of the settlement of Kakucs-Turján have applied a multi-disciplinary approach to recognize the everyday reality of communities living in Early and Middle Bronze Age Hungary. Field prospection and preliminary excavations allowed characterization of the overall site parameters, while the subsequent excavation seasons provided evidence...
Article

The article presents the results of research on the absolute chronology of the Nižná Myšľa cemetery. Due to its scale and location in a key region of the Carpathian Basin, it should be considered one of the most important Early Bronze Age sites in Central Europe. Many years of archaeological research have so far failed to provide adequate data on a...

The cemetery in Nižná Myšľa is one of the most important funerary sites in Early Bronze Age Central Europe. Many years of excavations led to the discovery of nearly 800 graves associated with the Otomani-Füzesabony culture. The presented paper is an attempt to reconstruct the spatial development of the cemetery, based on statistical analyses of gra...
Article
Thus far, prehistoric rock art has not been featured in the discourse concerned with the archaeology of Poland due to the absence of finds there belonging to this category. This text presents the very first identified specimens of cup marks in the present-day territory of Poland; all differ significantly in terms of context, which consequently dete...

The homogenous cultural identity that emerged during the Middle Bronze Age (2000-1450 cal BC) in the central territory of the Carpathian Basin is identified uniformly as the Vatya culture. The Vatya people created multi-layered tells, open air horizontal, as well as fortified settlements along the western and eastern bank of the Danube river. These...
Article
Kakucs-Turján is a multi-layered fortified settlement from the Middle Bronze Age located in Central Hungary. The site was subjected to a non-invasive prospection using the magnetometry method. The magnetic anomalies provided insight into the horizontal plan of the site, revealing a tri-partite structure encircled and divided internally by ditches....
Article

Studies of friction ridge impressions on archaeological artefacts are only very rarely published due to the high rate of destruction of such traces or leaving out such information of the analyses of archaeological material. The article presents the results of examinations of friction ridge impressions discovered on daub fragments from the Early Bro...
Book

The Kakucs-Turján archaeological site was investigated by a Polish-Hungarian-German research team of archaeologists and various specialists. This volume contains the first, preliminary results of their work, giving the reader an insight into the complex history of the Bronze Age settlement and its economic activities as reflected in the multi-layer...

Zarys treści. Upowszechnienie się w archeologii metod nieinwazyjnych umożliwiło w znacznie większej skali badania obszarów leśnych. W badaniach cmentarzysk kurhanowych położonych na Wale Krotoszyńskim (Las Krotoszyn), w celu rozpoznania morfometrycznego cmentarzyska kurhanowego i identyfikacji kopców, które weryfikowano dodatkowo w tere-nie, zastos...

A Kiskunsági homokhát, a Pesti hordalékkúp-síkság, illetve a Pilis—Alpári homokhát találkozásánál az ócsai Turjánvidék szomszédságában található Kakucs—Turján mögött lelőhely a Kárpát-medence középső bronzkorában (ca. 2000/1900–1500/1450 cal BC) a Vatya-kultúra népességének egyik jellegzetes települése volt. A területen több talajtani módszer együt...
Article
Based on the similar ceramic style and typography, the homogenous cultural identity that emerged during the Middle Bronze Age (app. 2000/1900-1500/1450 cal BC) in the central territory of the Carpathian Basin is called Vatya culture. The settlement network of the Vatya culture implies fortified, multi-layered tells and open air horizontal settlemen...

A Kárpát-medence központi területén a középső bronzkorban (ca. 2000/1900–1500/1450 cal BC) virágzó nagy kulturális egységet — az azonos kerámiastílus alapján — Vatya-kultúrának nevezzük. A kultúra ún. erődített, több rétegű tell-településekből, változó méretű és jellegű nyíltszíni telepekből álló településhálózatot hozott létre, mely talajtani és f...

Zusammenfassung: In den letzten Jahrzehnten nahm die Siedlung von Spišský Štvrtok eine wichtige Rolle in der Debatte über jene Fernbeziehungen ein, die die Welt der mykenischen Kultur mit Mitteleuropa verbanden. Obwohl die Ergebnisse der Ausgrabungen auf dem Gelände noch immer nicht in ihrer Gesamtheit veröffentlicht sind, postulierte der Ausgräber...
Data
Full-text available
The present study hopes to contribute to Middle Bronze Age studies in two specific areas: first, by publishing a new series of radiocarbon dates for a period from which there are few absolute dates, and second, by describing a less known area in the Vatya culture distribution based on the investigations at Kakucs. The Kakucs area was increasingly i...

Without a doubt, Nižná Myšla' is one of the more significant sites of the European Bronze Age. The excavations, which have been carried out in the location since the 1970s, revealed hundreds of graves associated with one of the defensive settlements of the Otomani-Füzesabony culture. This paper presents a discussion relying on the recent 14C-based...

Research on the network of Bronze Age settlements and their burial grounds has always been a priority of archaeological fieldwork in Central Europe. Researchers of the past centuries tended to focus on the large central settlements such as tells and hillforts. The past decade has seen a shift in research perspectives: while the study of central set...
Conference Paper

Tens of barrows of the Tumulus culture create a clearly visible element of the cultural landscape of south-western part of the Polish Lowlands. Paradoxically, the abundance of this category of archaeological sources does not broaden our knowledge about the societies that left them behind. The majority of cemeteries were discovered, mapped and excav...

Archived project
The aim of the project is to carry out multi-dimensional spatial analysis aimed to capture the relationship between the variables governing the environment and Tumulus culture burials. Planned analysis will be conducted on two levels: a) macro, which refers to the total trial area of Forest Krotoszyn, b) micro - for each barrow cemeteries and individual objects.
Project
The project aims to reconstruct the human – environment relations in the microregion of Bruszczewo in Samica valley (Great Poland) by the means of geoarchaeological methods. The project assumes to use the interdisciplinary methodology derived both from archaeology and environmental sciences to create a high precision history of landscape evolution and by combining it with the archaeological knowledge to provide a complex history of human-environment relations in the crucial region for prehistoric and historic cultural development in this part of Europe.
