Finds and chronology of a middle Copper Age settlement in Budapest, 3rd district. In the spring of 2002, rescue excavations were conducted in Kiscelli Street, Budapest for about one and a half months preceding the construction of a residential block. Finds and features of the middle Copper Age were found under a thick Roman period layer. The time was not enough to reach the subsoil on the entire territory, so not all the prehistoric features could be uncovered. Twelve pits and a small oven were unearthed from the middle Copper Age. The number of finds was uneven in them. An important result was that we could observe the traces of metallurgy: the fragment of a casting pot and copper drops, which imply local copper production. The analysis of the ceramic material led to the conclusion that this site represents a yet unregistered although, according to former finds, already existing phase of the Hungarian middle Copper Age, which lends a special importance to this site. This study is dedicated to Erzsébet Ruttkay, an eminent researcher of the period, who died last year.
