Popis The transitional period at the end of the Eneolithic (Copper Age) and the beginning of the Bronze Age (3rd millennium BC) signified an important part of Central European prehistory, during which several changes in material culture, ritual practices, ideology, settlement pattern and social structures occurred. This study is focused only on graves of Corded Ware culture in Moravia (eastern part of Czech Republic), which in wider central and northern European perspective represents the beginning of social changes. Burial rite creates extraordinary combination of everyday-life features and cosmological concepts of societies, thus it reflects practices of people, who are trying to cope with death disrupting relationships and violating social structures. The main task of these practices was to confirm or change the individual and/or group identity until the moment, when the social balance will again occur.
