Chapter Summary

The great change in the burial rites which took place after 966 and consisted of introducing the inhumation indicates only the formal Christianization of Polish lands. It was formal because the baptism of the ruler and his milieu did not mean an immediate transformation of all pagans in Piast Poland into Christians or abandoning the custom of burning the dead and making barrows. Identifying a population re-settled from another region of the country is nothing new for Polish lands.16 More than twenty years ago a hypothesis was put forward of the possible re-settlement of Great Polish population, which may have taken place in the 970s in the area of modern Sandomierz, this issue is discussed in this chapter.
