BURIAL MOUND NO. 2 IN MALZYCE, THE DISTRICT OF KAZIMIERZA WIELKA
The article presents new results of rescue excavations in Malzyce (Little Poland; loess covered upland). The mound marked as 'barrow 2' was a rest of TRB megalithic monument. Also four graves of Corded Ware and two graves of Mierzanowice culture were discovered. The article concerns a detailed description of finds, especially of rich catacomb graves of Corded Ware culture. On the basis of the absolute and the relative chronologies it may be assumed that barrow in Malzyce was used in two phases separated by nearly a thousand years; the first phase was related to the TRB (approx. 3600-3300 BC), and the second phase to the Cracow-Sandomierz group of Corded Ware culture (approx. 2500-2400 BC). Moreover, two graves point to the third phase in the history of the place: Early Bronze age.
