Later the burial customs and grave goods are analysed and each section is completed with a summary. The concluding part of the book gives an outline of the settlement history and ethnic relations during the Avar Period in County Baranya. On the basis ofthefinds, three consecutive Avar invasions of the Carpathian Basin can be followed. At the same time the existence of different ethnic groups on this territory can be traced.
