Archaeological research is always a struggle with the shadows of past reality, but when we are faced with only the shadow of a shadow, the investigation becomes even more complex. It is a sad reality that archaeological excavations must "destroy" the sites in order to gather the maximum amount of information for future scientific work. The problem is that the information collected is always limited and new, broader questions are constantly emerging. Many important investigations have been carried out during the 20th century and the materials would have the potential to tell us even more about the past using today's approaches. Every year, the methods of investigation are improved both technologically and scientifically. But a great deal of important information has already been lost. What can we do to gain new information about the known Stone Age to Iron age/Medieval cemeteries? What are new methods that will enable us to obtain new results from the archaeologically recorded historical data? What kind of additional insights can be expected at all after a published monograph and material collection? What can we do if excavation information has been partially lost within the last 50 years? Or if the excavation results have not been published at all or only partially? Another branch of the discussion are questions about the author's right to protection on intellectual works. What should be essentials for equal work in international archaeological projects of the re-investigation of sites and theoretical concepts? How should be organized works with access to material funds and archives and adhere to ethical standards of scientific cooperation? We invite you to participate in our session in order to gain a new perspective on the investigation of cemeteries excavated during the last century and to share with us the methodological strategies for the re-investigation of results.
