This chapter looks at mortuary practices as key symptoms of major consumption patterns and the socio-economic impulses that produced monumental forms of commemoration in the whole east Balkan land mass. The popularity of monumental burials, and of generous and variable grave goods within them, is marked and widespread. This makes mortuary habits a key aspect of economic behaviour in the region.

Keywords:   tumuli, mounds, chamber tombs, grave goods, armour, weapons, gold, silver
