Quick Reference


First phase of the Hungarian Bronze Age dating to the later 3rd millennium bc, the local successor of the Vucedol–Zok group and precursor of Hatvan and Fuzesabony cultures. Most settlements of this period are tells surrounded by enclosing banks and ditches. Timber‐framed houses are used at some sites, but mud‐brick structures with internal partitions are also known. The main style of pottery is the one‐ or two‐handled cup with a tall funnel neck that is made in a black burnished ware. Burials are mainly in urned cremations and grave goods are rare.
