Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Bodzia: A Late Viking-Age Elite Cemetery in Central Poland contains the table of contents, a list of illustrations, list of tables and a list of contributors. The book presents one of the most fascinating archaeological discoveries of the post-war period in Poland: the cemetery at Bodzia in the Kuyavia region. It focuses on the key questions connected with the Middle and Lower Vistula route during the Middle and Late Viking Period. The book overlooks the site at Bodzia, and reviews the various categories of goods deposited in graves. It deals with the funerary rites, explains absolute dating and the chronology obtained through stratigraphical and typological analysis, and talks about the issues of ethno-cultural affiliation of the deceased. The book places the discoveries at the Bodzia cemetery in their wider, European and Polish contexts, and summarizes important findings and questions of the interdisciplinary analyses.

Keywords: Bodzia; cemetery; Central Poland; ethno-cultural affiliation; funerary rites; Kuyavia region; Late Viking Period; Vistula route
