'Jelínek J, 2012: Dismembering, filleting and evisceration of human bodies in a Bronze Age site in Moravia, Czech Republic. Anthropologie (Brno) 50, 2: 209-226'.
Human remains found in the Early Bronze Age refuse pits at Cezavy Hill, South Moravia, are described. Special attention is paid to the skeletons of two individuals: numerous cutmarks demonstrate the dismembering, filleting and evisceration of the cadavers. The find is interpreted as a part of the complex ritual showing earlier (Eneolithic) roots and later (Iron Age) continuity, illustrating the social relations in the Bronze Age. This article is a reprint of a previously published article (Jelínek J., 1993: Anthropologie (Brno) 31, 3: 99-114).
