The Hegykő cemetery (and the Hegykő group) has strong ties with the 6th-century cemeteries of Lower-Austria both regarding its material culture and its funerary rites, and thus any interpretation must be set in this context. The comparative analysis of the cemetery’s two grave groups sheds light on the tendency that the community using the cemetery gradually acculturated to the population using the 6th-century cemeteries of Pannonia.
Described in the study is a burial of the Sopot Culture. The solitary burial found on the settlement and its rich inventory of finds (vessels, a Spondylus pendant and beads) provides the springboard for an overview of the culture’s burial rite and grave goods as well as its cultural contacts. One of the unique traits of the burial is that it incorporates both the Linearbandkeramik traditions of the Transdanubian Sopot Culture and the typical finds of the Slavonian Sopot Culture.
