From 1999 until 2008 there was an extensive archaeological excavations research near the Central Bohemian village of Vliněves, Mělník Region. It was conducted by the Institute of Archaeology of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Prague. The number of uncovered objects on an area of about 54 hectares exceeded ten thousand, and in an area of more than 25 hectares, there was found a high intensity of prehistoric settlement. The largest number of archaeological finds belongs to the Early Bronze Age (burial site, the focus of this work, and the current settlement). Due to its spatial relevance to the catalogue, three graves were also included, which can be dated to the period of the Tumulus Culture.
The burial site of the Únětice Culture in the sandpit in Vliněves with 304 graves is one of the largest excavated areas of this culture. In addition, there were also burials in 57 settlement sunken features found in the excavated area. Altogether, there were various burial circumstances of at least 399 Bronze Age individuals documented. The work presents the result of the archaeological research of all the Early Bronze Age graves in the site, their documentation, spatial analysis and quantitative comparison.
