Некрополът на праисторическото селище Балей (предварително съобщение за резултатите от проучванията през 2013 г.)
Keywords:Baley, Žuto Brdo-Gârla Mare, Bistreț-Ișalnița, Vârtop, urnfield necropolis, cremation burial practices, Late Bronze Age, Early Iron Age
The article presents four burial complexes studied in 2013, representative of the Baley-Orsoia (or Žuto Brdo-Gârla Mare), Bistreț-Ișalnița and Vârtop chronological phases. In addition to these, the investigations of the Baley necropolis revealed also graves of earlier date, synchronous to the Verbicioara ІІІ phase. The brief review of the associated inventory and the burial practices suggests that at the Baley necropolis the Late Bronze Age and the beginning of the Early Iron Age are represented by reasonably certain sealed complexes. During 2013 investigations we encountered a new for the site custom – placement of the cremated remains in a dish, with a large number of vessels, including biconical jars arranged in proximity with it.
