The study addresses the relationships between Moravia and south Germany in the Early Middle Ages. Among the many social phenomena influenced by mutual contacts, the work in particular discusses the change in the burial ritual. Among other things, this social process can also be connected with the spread of Late Merovingian earrings with spherical pendants and disc brooches. The beginnings of cultural influence stretches back far into the 8th century, when the first inhumation graves appear in Moravia. The women that were also buried in these graves wore Alemanni and Bavarian ornaments.
