Budakalász

 

a burial ground belonging to the Baden, or Pecel, culture that was discovered near Budapest in 1952. More than 550 graves were uncovered. Burying predominated, although cremation is also evident; cenotaphs were found as well. The unearthed objects include tureens divided into two parts, small pitchers, canoe-shaped stone axes, copper awls, beads, and shells of the genus Dentalium. A unique find was a rectangular vessel that had four wheels instead of the usual four legs; this is the oldest evidence of the existence of carriages in Central Europe. The burial ground dates from the third millennium B.C.
