Summary/Abstract: The article represents preliminary analysis of the complex cultural landscape near Chistyj Prud lake and formerly Preußisch Arnau and Lapsau areas (Gurjevski district of Kaliningrad Oblast), where Gurjevka river falls into Pregel which is considered the main waterway in the south-east Baltic area. This region played one of the key roles in system of communications of Sambian-Natangian culture. The attention is focused on formerly Käpphen bei Preußisch Arnau graveyard, situated at the north-east outskirt of Rodniki township. Also, information about other archaeological sites dated to first millennium A. D. is systematized. Both published and archive data from pre-war excavations are involved, as well as experience of the modern prospecting and locating of graveyards known only by pre-war digs.
