Abstract: The primary goal of this article is to present the results of the minor development-led excavation taking place at the building site of a water connection pipe in Nitra, borough of Lužianky, location ‘Pri vinárskych závodoch’. Three features of the Vekerzug Culture were excavated here in February 2005. Taking into consideration their smaller size and irregular oval shape, the utilization of these features has not been definitely specified. Feature No. 2 was of commercial nature, whereas it is not possible to determine precisely whether the features No. 1 and No. 3 were dwellings or not. The feature No. 3 was filled with a large amount of burnt clay daub. In the fill of the features occurred only limited number of pottery (with utility hand-thrown ceramics prevailing over a very small number of wheel-turned vessels), animal bones and small artefacts, mainly ceramic whorls. Based on the analysis of ceramic material from the feature No. 3 we could place the settlement features from Lužianky at the beginning of the phase Ha D2.
