Late Bronze Age mortuary practices and society in southern Carpathian Basin

Opis projekta

This project proposes to combine archaeology and physical anthropology in order to expand the current knowledge of Late Bronze Age (LBA) mortuary practices and society in Carpathian Basin. It will integrate analyses of burial features and associated artifacts with analyses of cremated human remains from at least seven urnfield cemeteries in northern Croatia, dated between 13th and 9th century BC. We shall seek correlations between skeletal and artifactual evidence, which should allow us to recognize regularities and possible discrepancies linked to a specific gender or age group. Our primary aim is to investigate the variability of mortuary practices as reflected in modes of corpse treatment and disposal. At a more general level, we shall combine our data in order to investigate LBA social identities in southern Carpathian Basin. Our second aim is to investigate whether the traditionally perceived difference between 'Urnfield culture' and 'Belegiš II group' can be detected in mortuary evidence other than urns. Our sample of 120 burials covers a time span of six centuries, which will allow us to monitor the diversity of mortuary practices during the entire LBA and also contribute to the resolution of regional chronology. In order to archive the data, as well as to distribute and promote our findings, we shall design a public-access data base, organize a round table with experts from region and publish our results in a monograph.
