Description In the cemetery at Diváky, some changes in burial rites occurred which were probably induced by the gradual Christianisation of the rural population. Among evidence of pre-Christian burial rites at the cemetery at Diváky during the Middle Hillfort Period (9th – mid-10 century) can be included the remains of funerary feasts, grave inclusions in the form of entire animal skeletons, the fumigation of graves, and a contracted female burial at the periphery of the cemetery.
