Description The cremation grave from Vlkov nad Lesy, which was discovered by J. Celler, a pupil of a local municipal school, at the location of Vyšehrad in around 1910, represents an important complex dating from the second half of the 2nd to the early 3rd century AD. Its importance lies in the fact that the cremation was placed in a bronze, Westland-type cauldron. Along with the mentioned urn, the grave also contained two iron stuhlsporn-type spurs, a deformed sword and other small objects. The grave and its naturebuild on the traditions of burials in bronze vessels of the early Roman period. This phenomenon canbe considered as a typical sign of rank of the barbarian elite.
