Roman graveyard

The Romans buried their dead by the roads leading out of the settlement. At the far eastern area of the settlement complex, some ten meters away from the place where we are currently situated, a Roman graveyard extended with a total of 164 discovered tombs. Besides cremation burials also skeleton burials were executed. The latter were a feature of the late Antiquity period. This was the era when Christianity was in full swing over the whole empire.
