Sažetak

During the archaeological excavations at the
site Osijek–Ciglana and Zeleno polje in 2015,
the remains of a multi-layered settlement were
found. Finds of four skeletal graves stand out,
with one grave found isolated on the northern
part of the excavated area, while the other
three were grouped some 260 m to the south.
All the bodies were laid in a crouched position
on their side. Since no grave goods or parts of
garment were registered in the graves and
there were no archaeological finds in the grave
fill, the graves are dated based on the results of
the radiocarbon analysis of the inhumed bones.
The grave situated on the northern part of the
site (grave 1) is ascribed to the Late Eneolitihic
and attributed to the late classical phase of the
Vučedol Culture. The three graves recorded on
the southern part of the site (graves 2, 3, and 4)
were dated to the Early Bronze Age. On the basis of radiocarbon dates and elements of the burial
practice, they are attributed to the Kisapostag
Culture. The mentioned graves represent the
only Late Eneolithic and Early Bronze Age finds
from the site, and the existence of concurrent
settlements nearby can be assumed. An analysis
of human skeletal remains revealed the presence
of a female over 50 years of age in grave 1, males
35 to 50 years of age in graves 2 and 4, as well as
a juvenile aged 10 to 15 in grave 3.
