'Pettitt P, Hedges R, 2008: The age of the Vedrovice cemetery: the AMS radiocarbon dating programme. Anthropologie (Brno) 46, 2-3: 125-134'.
An ambitious radiocarbon dating programme was applied to the human skeletal material from the Vedrovice cemetery. Results suggest that the burials span the 53rd century BC, confirming that the Vedrovice cemetery (and by extension settlement) belongs to the end of the early phase of the regional LBK. The use of the cemetery therefore spanned some five or six generations. Insufficient data on the ceramic phasing of the cemetery precluded refinement of the phasing model although results suggest that a major transition occurred around 5200 BC.
