added by archaeologs Large settlement and cemetery of the Late Neolithic Lengyel culture, located near Pecs in south Trans-danubia, Hungary, and dated to much of the 4th millennium be. Excavated by J. Dombay, the site consists of clusters of graves interspersed with areas of settlement debris. This pattern is consistent with family groups buried close to where they lived. Over 350 graves are known, mainly crouched inhumations. Whilst not rich, the grave goods include more copper and fine stone artefacts than are known from the settlement.
