Abstract: In the 11th – 8th century BC inhumations in mounds was practiced in Thrace. At the end of the 7th and early 6th century BC there was a change in the funeral ritual – it shifted to cremation. From the middle of 4th to the middle of 3rd century BC the monumental burial facilities were the most widespread in Thrace. For burial practices at the beginning of the Roman Age (1st century AD), cremation was more specific. In the 2nd century AD the cremation continued, but there were a few funeral burials. In the 4th century AD the most widespread were inhumations, but there were some exceptions.
