Chapter Summary

There are many types of stronghold, not all of them became towns; many of the important ones known from the written sources existed only for a short time during the early stages of the development of the state and then their significance declined. This chapter presents several other sites of this type which have been examined in the past and are still the subject of discussion. Many such strongholds can be seen as earthworks and are one of the most specific features of the Polish historical landscape. Despite this they are often anonymous; no mention about them can be found in the written sources, there is no historical memory; conversely it is also the case that strongholds known from the written sources are still waiting for identification. A good example of the latter is the sites of Chevron and Volyn.
