Chapter Summary

Scholars engaged in discussions on the functions of Early Medieval annals are in agreement about the multidimensionality of their presence in the societies of that time. The search for traces of the Early Medieval family or dynastic traditions in Polish annals may seem a banal task. The documents which are of the most importance for our studies are those containing records which derive from lost annals written in Poland. Among them are the &t;Old Annals&t;, the &t;Annals of the Cracow Chapter&t;, the &t;Kamieniec Annals&t;, and to a somewhat lesser degree the &t;First Poznan Annals&t; and the &t;Annals of the Poznan Chapter&t;. In discussions on the genesis of Polish annalistic writing, it has long been accepted that if we regard the records concerning the beginnings of the Polish state as reliable, this must mean that they had arisen in the territory of the Piasts.
