The aim of our research was the geoarchaeological examination of the Vesszőshalom of Pusztaszer as an anthropogenic positive exogen geological form. This mound is one of the kurgans in the Hungarian Great Plain, whose construction is connected to the Yamnaya Culture at the Late Copper and Early Bronze Age. The complex geoarchaeological investigation of the mound allowed us to separate the different construction layers in the kurgan's body. Besides the archaeological results, we were able to reconstruct the environmental conditions before and during construction by the comparative examination of the buried soil under the kurgan. For this purpose, we used sedimentological analyses (grain size distribution, geochemical analysis, magnetic susceptibility measurements, malacological and pollen analysis) on the samples from the borehole of the Vesszős-halom. In addition, radiocarbon dating of some levels of the kurgan has also taken place. Based on the results of our research changes in the local environment of the mound over the past 5000 years can be reconstructed.
