Abstract (in english)
   The goal of this paper was to verify, whether the incidence of non-metric traits at the Mikulčice-Kostelisko burial site differs in individuals with rich and poor grave equipment i.e. whether it differs between two, socially quite probably dissimilar groups. We then compared the morphological similarity of individuals in relation to the topography of the burial site. Comparison of the smaller group of individuals from graves with rich equipment defined according to Hrubý's criteria yielded more favourable results, as it showed statistically significant differences in the incidence of several traits.
