Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview of the finds from the Bodzia cemetery. At the cemetery of Bodzia, a total of 528 'small finds' were found within the burial pits. For the purposes of analysis they were divided into five basic categories: weapons, tools, costume and ornaments, items connected with merchants and trade, and containers of ceramics and wood. A separate group comprised the structural elements of the burials, including remains of wooden biers, coffins and their iron fittings, iron padlocks and keys. In the fills of 45 graves as many as 1680 small prehistoric potsherds were found. The remaining finds comprise a fragment of a saddle quern stone, a leather sheath of a knife, strengthened with bronze fittings, an iron padlock key, metal coffin fittings, a padlock from one of the coffins and several other artifacts made of metal that were difficult to identify due to their advanced corrosion.

Keywords: Bodzia cemetery; bronze fittings; costume; iron padlocks; ornaments; prehistoric potsherds; weapons; wooden biers
