Summary / Abstract:

ENAlmost two hundred 15th-17th centuries burial monuments have been investigated in the territory of Lithuania. About 6000 graves have been found and investigated in them. There is known about thirty 15th- 17th centuries burial monuments in the former Lithuania’s Semigallia territory - in the districts of Akmenė, Joniškis, Pakruojis and in the Northen part of Šiauliai region. Almost all of them are more or less investigated. [...] The collected finds allow to date the old Dapkūnai burial grounds the beginning of the 15th cent.-the 16th cent That is confirmed by silver III-rd type Lithuanian coin found in grave Nr. 8. The plenty of the 15th-16th centuries and especially of the 16th-17th centuries old burial-grounds allow to think that North Middle Lithuania, i. e. the former Southern Semigallians’ territory was densely populated at that lime. To tell the truth, the burial monuments of the 13th century and the beginning of the 14th century are not known and investigated in this territory so far, therefore it is unknown how much Lithuania’s Semigallia suffered from the Livonia Order’s attacks. The available archaeological data show that the population was increasing in Middle Lithuania’s North since the beginning of the 15th cent. A denser settlement of this territory can be dealt with since the beginning of the 16th century. Most of the late burial-grounds here are dated the 16th-17th centuries. [From the publication]
