The subject of my research is the interdisciplinary examination of an Árpád Age (11th–13th century) cemetery excavated in Somogy County in the site of Főnyed–Gólyásfa. I tried to interpret the remains of a total of 535 individuals, the former church area, the location of the surrounding graves, their relationship to each other and their shape. In addition, with the help of representing various phenomena and of the analogies, I attempted to define the dating and to separate the periods of use. The chemical composition data of our metal finds was determined non-destructively by X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy or Raman spectroscopy. Conclusions were made about the potential raw materials of various types (silver, copper, lead), mainly hair rings, earrings, rings and iron objects (with high nickel ratio). Some of the finds: a glass and a lead-coated bead, a silver ring decorated with amber, an ’S-shapedend’ ring made of lead and a ball button fragment allowed us to enrich our previous archaeological knowledge. Structural analysis on the blade of an iron knife have been carried out, from which we could conclude its assumed method of preparation. Separating silver finds of different fineness and copper-based objects containing different main alloys, and the comparison of the grave locations made it possible to start to clarify the periodisation. During my work, I have also attempted to complete the collection of human data: to set the demographic, paleopathological evaluation of the complex anthropological material, with special attention to the male surplus or to the traumatic lesions on the earliest, western part of the cemetery. I tried to apply a method of cemetery analysis, which combines archeometry, anthropology and geoinformatics beside the full range of archaeological methods, and which would hopefully be useful for future research.
