The article discusses the research results of a group of several barrows with inhumations of the 11th — beg. 12th centuries (Kotorsk IX), which is part of the archaeological complex near Kotorsk village in the north of the Pskov region. The barrows were built on the edge of the burial ground with scattered cremations of the 10th—11th centuries, probably the barrows were successively associated with it. Small objects found in burials are typical of medieval Russian inhumations of the 11th — beg. 12th centuries, some ceramic forms have their own features. A number of features in the internal structure of the studied barrows correlate with the funerary rituals of the Long Barrows Culture and, probably, provide new information about the specific participation of this culture’s bearers in the formation of medieval Russian culture in the Northwest.

Keywords: Old Rus, 11th—12th centuries, funerary rite, funerary costume, barrows, inhumations
