poland-lusatian-cemetery-childrenPOLAND: A cemetery belonging to people of the Lusatian culture, from the late Bronze Age and early Iron Age, has turned up around a thousand ceramic vessels. The Lusatians, a culture of cereal farmers and herdspeople, cremated their dead and buried the bones in urns alongside grave goods such as richly ornamented vessels, jewelry, and tools. Among the 151 graves excavated in this cemetery are a number of children’s graves, which include miniature clay vessels and even clay rattles. —Samir S. Patel
