Abstract: The presented paper deals with the analysis of the burial rite at the burial ground near Bučany, which was used from the late Hallstatt till the Early La Tène period. The main aim is to highlight certain aspects of the burial rite, which appears in inhumation as well as in cremation graves and confront the findings with a similar situation in the Middle Danube area. For these purposes the analysis works with elements such as treatment remains, placing and functional combinations of grave goods, dimensions and space modification of graves. On the burial ground were found 36 graves of which 4 were cremation graves. When evaluating the main findings, the significant appearance of women graves in particular, as opposed to the warriors’ graves should be mentioned. Just in this group we can observe the greatest variability of the funeral ritual. By comparison of burial rite between cremation and inhumation graves some parallels appear in the way how mourners deposited interments in relation to cadavers and form of grave arrangement.
