Abstract: The paper is focused on the detailed analysis of the funerals of the Vekerzug culture in central Danube. The subject of the analysis is the skeletal and cremation graves from the burials of the Vekerzug culture from the territory of southwest Slovakia and central Hungary. The original database is based on information obtained from archaeological sources, mainly information about burial pits, composition of inventory and how to store individual objects. The main focus is on recognizing the variability of funeral habits in the Chotin-Preseľany nad Ipľom graves and its confrontation with the already existing concept of regional segmentation of Vekerzug culture and the identification of elements of funeral ritual that we can theoretically associate with the influence of foreign communities.
