Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses artifacts made of antler and stone at Bodzia cemetery. At the cemetery of Bodzia, objects made of antler were represented by two combs included in the grave goods. The former comes from Feature E856 and was made of antler. This comb may be classified as Group IB, Type VII, Variant 5, sub-variant b, after E. Cnotliwy. Combs made of antler are an exceptionally rare kind of grave equipment in the Polish lands. One of the few graves containing such finds is the burial from the cemetery at Niemcza in Lower Silesia, dated to the late 10th-11th century. Querns are exceptionally rare in burials and only a few cases are known from the Polish lands. Grave E870 at Bodzia is interesting also because of the fact that the stone was located over the skull.
