Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses ceramic and wooden containers found in Bodzia cemetery. Fragments of two pottery vessels were found in the fill of two burial pits. In the lower Drwęca valley, these vessels have equivalents in biconical pots with the maximum diameter of the belly near the top of the vessel, classified as Group C1. From the point of view of typology the finds from Bodzia may be classified as Type I distinguished for the group of buckets from the cemetery at Lutomiersk. The analyses made of the fillings of the buckets from Sowinki (Greater Poland) indicate that food was stored in them: meat, corn or oilseed plants. Analyzing the symbolic meaning of the presence of wood and metal buckets in graves, it is also necessary to take into account the kind of material from which the staves were made.
