'Dočkalová M, 2006: Two Skeleton Graves from Neolithic Settlements in Moravia (Czech Republic). Anthropologie (Brno) 44, 2: 127-137'.
In the region of Moravia, as well as all over central Europe, Neolithic farmers (5700-4500 BC) developed specific cultural behaviours - these are recorded in the earliest history of this territory and reflected also in the burial rite variations. For the first time in early human history, Neolithic people started to systematically bury their dead. This was manifested by the existence of skeleton burial grounds, founded near their settlements, but also by burying the dead in the settlements themselves. Two cases of settlement burials from Moravia (Mašovice - Culture with Linear Pottery, Těšetice - Culture with Moravian Painted Pottery) evidence the existence of burial rites (Rulf 1996), as well as of religious ideas of Neolithic people.
