During the summer of 2019, within the FEMINE project, trial excavations were continued in the Late Hallstatt and the Early La Tene cemetery in Lovas in western Syrmia. The cemetery is located in the very centre of the village, on a gentle elevation lying along the eastern edge of the loess plateau. It was discovered during the construction of the waterworks in the 1970s, when inhumation graves were found and dated to the younger phase of the Early Iron Age. The trial excavations conduced in 2018 discovered a biritual cemetery from the end of the Early Iron Age and the beginning of the Late Iron Age. When the excavations continued, they found more funerary complexes confirming the dates and layout of the cemetery. What particularly stood out were women’s inhumation graves richly furnished with items of costume and jewellery. Also, there was an exceptional find – the burial of a horse with iron bit of the form found in the area of the Lower Danube. The trial excavations in Lovas within the FEMINE project have confirmed the hypothesis that this is an exceptionally important site from the transition from the Early to Late Iron Age. Particular importance has been attached to the discovery of closed funerary complexes with female costume and jewellery items and the associated anthropological sample that will enable interdisciplinary bioarchaeological analyses.
