This article is aimed to introduce into scientific discourse the results of the research of burial ground Berezovka/Gross Ottenhagen dated to the 2nd—12th cc. conducted in 2004. According to the results of work in the eastern and western parts of the Berezovka burial ground, we can make preliminary conclusion that originally this burial ground contained more than 500 burials. According to data of geophysical investigations in the neighborhood, we can conclude that there may be more than 100 undisturbed burial complexes. Burials dated to the Roman Time, that were investigated at Berezovka burial ground in season 2004, give us a wealth of material for study. Along with the burials that are traditional for certain stages of development of Sambian-Natangian Culture in the Roman Time, some new elements of the funeral rite occur on Berezovka burial ground, clearly indicating contacts with other synchronous cultures. These findings allow to clarify and to a certain degree to reconstruct the processes of social and cultural transformation that took place in the territories of the Pregolya River valley in the Roman Time.

Keywords: Pregolya River valley, Roman Time, Great Migration Period, Sambian-Natangian culture, amber trade
