Altogether 17 radiocarbon results referring to the Corded Ware culture were obtained. The selection of samples determined the good quality of the dated material from the Late Neolithic graves (mainly human bones). The new series aimed to verify previous establishments including dating of the cemetery in Zerniki Górne in particular. Four important results were obtained from central barrow graves. New dates verify the absolute chronology of the Corded Ware culture in south-eastern Poland. The beginning of the CWC settlement fell probably on years 2800-2700 BC. The final stage should be referred to ca. 2300 BC.
