The male body – said to date back to between 2900-2500BC – was discovered   buried in a way normally reserved only for women of the Corded Ware culture   in the Copper Age.

The skeleton was found in a Prague suburb in the Czech   Republic with its head pointing eastwards and surrounded by domestic   jugs, rituals only previously seen in female graves.

“From history and ethnology, we know that people from this period took   funeral rites very seriously so it is highly unlikely that this positioning   was a mistake,” said lead archaeologist Kamila Remisova Vesinova.

“Far more likely is that he was a man with a different sexual   orientation, homosexual or transsexual,” she added.

According to Corded Ware culture which began in the late Stone Age and   culminated in the Bronze Age, men were traditionally buried lying on their   right side with their heads pointing towards the west, and women on their   left sides with their heads pointing towards the east. Both sexes would be   put into a crouching position.

The men would be buried alongside weapons, hammers and flint knives as well as   several portions of food and drink to accompany them to the other side.

Women would be buried with necklaces made from teeth, pets, and copper   earrings, as well as jugs and an egg-shaped pot placed near the feet.

“What we see here doesn’t add up to traditional Corded Ware cultural   norms. The grave in Terronska Street in Prague 6 is interred on its left   side with the head facing the West. An oval, egg-shaped container usually   associated with female burials was also found at the feet of the skeleton.   None of the objects that usually accompany male burials  such as weapons,   stone battle axes and flint knives  were found in the grave.

“We believe this is one of the earliest cases of what could be described   as a ‘transsexual’ or ‘third gender grave’ in the Czech Republic,”   archaeologist Katerina Semradova told a press conference on Tuesday.

She said that archeologists had uncovered an earlier case dating from the   Mesolithic period where a female warrior was buried as a man.

She added that Siberian shamans, or latter-day witch doctors, were also buried   in this way but with richer funeral accessories to appropriate to their   elevated position in society.

“But this later discovery was neither of those, leading us to believe   the man was probably homosexual or transsexual,” Semeradova said.

The Corded Ware culture takes its name from the frequent use of decorative   cord impressions found its pots and covered much of North, Central and   Eastern Europe.

It is also known as a single-grave and battleaxe culture due to separate   burials and the Mena s habit of being buried with stone axes.
