Chapter Summary

The interest in Early Medieval monuments has a long history in Poland. After the baptism of Poland, at the instigation of the Church, changes were made in the location of burial sites. The interest in Early Medieval archaeology became clearly more advanced in the second half of the 18th and, the more so, in the 19th century. It was inspired by the increased curiosity about the Slavic origins of Poland. A key figure of the period was King Stanislaw August Poniatowski, who took interest, among other things, in the discoveries of Early Medieval burial grounds. A milestone in the development of Early Medieval archaeology in Poland was the approaching 1000th anniversary of the beginning of the Polish state. The state of Polish Early Medieval archaeology is today best assessed through regional achievements. This is where the most interesting discoveries are being made, and the regional academic centers employ renowned researchers.
