Description The aim of this paper is mainly to point out the problems related to genesis of the Lusatian culture in Slovakia. Moreover, it outlines the development of the Lusatian culture in the Middle Váh Valley and adjacent region of the Eastern Moravia in the context of pulsing of the archaeological cultures model which clarifies the cultural dynamics in broader historical context. The confrontation of collected data with this model and the analysis of “pre-Lusatian” and early Lusatian sites provides a better viewpoint of the questions of genesis, development of settlement structure and cultural dynamics of the Lusatian culture. The article also shows multiple inconsistences in opinions on individual sites or particular graves which were previously dated to the Middle Bronze Age or even earlier. Besides defining these problematic data, the author opens a discussion on dating of the beginnings of the Lusatian culture in the region.
