Summary/Abstract: The Legedzino cemetery is located in Cherkassy region of Ukraine. We investigated its western part (518 m²) and discovered 63 graves: 35 cremations and 28 inhumations, including one burial pit with niche. In the cultural layer we found 20.236 fragments of vessels. Of these, wheel table ware make 83,7 %, wheel kitchen ware — 15,6 %, handmade ware — 0,4 %, import ceramics — 0,3 %. Most interesting finds are presented on pictures. Parts of soldier’s belt could lead to the conclusion that local warriors served in the frontier troops of the Roman Empire on the Rhine or on the Danube. In general, according to all materials, the cemetery could be dated by the whole of 4th c. A. D.
