Description Archaeological research in the southern bailey of the Great Moravian stronghold at Břeclav-Pohansko revealed that funerary equipment in several graves comprised glass beads and buttons. With regard to chemical composition of the raw material from which they were made it can be concluded that beads from alkaline glass containing more than 10 wt. % Na2O are dominant, whereas beads from siliceous glass containing more than 75 wt. % SiO2 and up to 10 wt. % Na2O as well as chemically unclassifiable beads are less frequent.
