(Un)Usual Neolithic and Early Eneolithic mortuary practices in the area of the North Carpathian Basin
Keywords: Neolithic, Early Eneolithic, North Carpathian Basin, mortuary practices, cremation burials, inhumation graves
AbstractOn the basis of the characteristics of Neolithic and Early Eneolithic mortuary practices in the area of North Carpathian Basin it can be argued that the existence of graveyards is an isolated phenomenon. Various rituals were involved in disposing of the dead. In this article, we focus on (un)usual burials which are singled out into two major categories: cremation and inhumation. Special emphasis is given to cremation as a mortuary practice: arguments for cremation; interpretation possibilities; examples of the use of fire and noticed phenomenon.
