|Description ||Barrow cemetery Kolis in Neerpelt, Belgium.|
Around 800 BC the urnfield culture got to our area. It was at its top around 600 BC, between the Bronze- and the Iron Age.
The inhabitants created an cemetery of urns in which they kept the remains of the dead. They covered the urns with a small mound, mostly surrounded by a ditch and sometimes by a circle of poles.
From 1959 to 1964 these mounds were examined systematiacally. Up to 130 mounds were discovered.
