Chapter Summary

Podebłocie, a small village 100 km south of Warsaw, became part of history thanks to the discovery of three modest looking pieces of red clay called by archaeologists the 'tablets of Podebłocie' which aroused a huge scientific controversy. The complex at Podebłocie, lies several kilometers away from the course of the Vistula river. It consists of a fortified settlement on a promontory, three adjoining settlements, a cemetery of cremation barrows and another cremation burial ground in the nearby Stasin. The most interesting of the discovered features here was one of the sunken floored huts which contained fragments of pottery vessels decorated with figural ornament-rare in the Early Middle Ages-and two of the clay tablet fragments with the signs resembling the letters of the Greek alphabet.
