Chapter Summary

This concluding chapter of the book The Mortuary Archaeology of the Medieval Banat (10th-14th Centuries) discusses that the analysis of the burial customs in use in the medieval Banat (10th-14th centuries) has revealed seven funerary horizons. The cemetery excavated in Deta, which has produced several Köttlachtype ornaments, but also others which appear to be earlier, has been attributed to a community of Alpine Slavs, believed to have moved into the Banat in the early 9th century, following the destruction of the Avar Khaganate by the Franks. The "Bjelo Brdo horizon" is documented primarily on sites in the northwestern part of the Banat. By 1300, new changes took place in the burial customs of the southeastern part of the Banat. The most important is the appearance of church graveyards. Churches were often built in the middle of old cemeteries.

Keywords: Avar Khaganate; Bjelo Brdo horizon; burial customs; church graveyards; Köttlachtype ornaments; medieval Banat
