Critical elaboration of previous research of early medieval mound burials in Central Europe. Specific objectives: Complex processing of well-known archeological sites, so-called Slavic burial mound zone with division into chronological phases, regions and categories (if necessary). Regional differences. Revision of dating sites. Special emphasis on Western Slovak groups (Upper Nitra, Turiec group). Methods: Revision research of selected localities in order to obtain samples for dating (in connection with a possible VEGA / APVV project). Non-invasive survey. Use of GIS and LiDAR data.
