Description Between 2006 and 2009 rescue survey projects were carried out on approximately two hectares at the site locally known as Přední lán in the cadastre of the borough of Rousínovec, a part of the town of Rousínov, Vyškov county, due to the planned construction of a logistics centre. The evidence of settlement is attributed to the Initial Eneolithic (Jordanow Culture) and the Early Eneolithic (the Funnelbeaker Culture), respectively. The earliest evidence of settlement of this area was found thanks to rescue surveys during the construction of the D1 motorway between 1985 and 1986. A total of 80 features attributed to the aforementioned cultures were documented. The article deals with the discovery of a crucible in a Jordanow culture feature whose satisfactory dating was possible thanks to a set of pottery items attributed to the final stage of Moravian Epilengyel. The spectre of elements determined via an analysis is more indicative of bronze. Therefore, the question is to what extent (if at all) the processes taking place after the items were buried affected the presence of individual elements.
