Chapter Summary

The village Bodzia developed from a mill settlement called Bodze (which means a mill), located on a dry lake (lacus dictus Bodzanowo) on a small stream called the Ośla which flows into the River Vistula. The village is compact and buildings of various sizes and construction dates are grouped on the south side of the communal road. The archaeological excavations at Bodzia were conducted in 2004 and 2007-2009 by the Centre for Prehistoric and Mediaeval Studies at the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnology, Polish Academy of Science, commissioned by the General Directorate of National Roads and Motorways. Several specialist analyses were conducted for the cemetery. Geomorphological analyses were conducted in order to establish the morphology and post-depositional processes which had taken place at the Bodzia site. Petrographic analyses were made on the stone artefacts.
