All this material comes from field investigations carry out by the staff of the Moravian Provin cial Museum in Brno in 1975 1996, and still not elaborated.

The project will require a comprehensive interdisciplinary elaboration and evaluation of the funerary accumulation of Vedrovice and (together with other complex burial grounds of the LnK in Moravia) in the widest Europe context
