Veröffentlichungen: Beitrag in FachzeitschriftArtikelPeer Reviewed


Located in North-Eastern Hungary, the site occupied during several periods a medieval castle and a multi-period prehistoric settlement with a tell-like layer sequence of several meters. Similar stratified hilltop settlements, sometimes protected with some type of defences, have hitherto usually been assigned to the Baden culture. However, most of these sites are known exclusively from old excavations or finds collected during field surveys. The investigation of the Baglyas-kő site was undertaken with the goal of clarifying the spatial occupation strategies employed by different cultures during successive periods in a location that was eminently suited to constructing strongholds and of determining the periods during which the site was occupied, alongside the identification of possible correlations between the finds and various archaeological features. As it turned out, the site was not solely occupied during the Baden period in prehistory.
