The paper presents a comprehensive analysis of wooden utensils from graves of Zrubna cultural and historical community. Different aspects of the use of wooden utensils in the funeral rituals were viewed. Historiographical survey showed considerable interest in the problems of wooden utensils and allowed to compare our results with studies of other authors. Our observations confirmed the allocation of three departments of wooden utensils for materials of Zrubna community, but their names have been clarified (ladle, tray, bowl). The analysis of the wooden utensils conducted separately for various classes. The study showed that only the burial with ladle did not have deviations from the «standard». All other burials, regardless of whether they contained tray or bowl, showed signs of high rank. Only three burials should be considered as an exception. There were tray and bowl together. In this cases burial ritual shows the evidence of priestly status of the deceased.
