Von „ganzen Häusern“ zu großen Männern? Beobachtungen zu Veränderungen in der Struktur süditalischer Gemeinschaften in archaischer Zeit am Beispiel der Nekropole von Ripacandida/Basilicata (Süditalien)

The necropolis of Ripacandida in northern Basilicata is used as an example for the reconstruction of the social structure, age and gender identities of a small indigenous community in the 6th-5th century BCE. In the course of the two centuries of its use, some changes in the composition of the grave clusters as well as in the combination of grave goods can be observed. This points to the conclusion that the community was not static, but developing during the time under study. It seems that within this short time major social changes occurred, gradually leading from egalitarian, family based units to the development of more powerful (male) individuals, separated from the core families and equipped with standardised, special symbolic goods, maybe supplied by higher, regional authorities as indicators of their elevated status.
