Some chronological issues of North-western Colchian cemeteries

In North-west Colchis during Late Bronze Early Iron Age we can find collective and individual burials. These are represented by two types: pit-tupes and jar burisls (ossuariums). In the first type we can differ various forms of graves with different burial ritual: inhumational, crematory and secondary burials. We observed mostly oblong and oval pit-type inhumational burials; in the rectangular types of graves we can see full or partial cremations; in ovel-type graves however there are secondary burial traditions. Secondary burial mode presents mostly in jar graves.
