Chapter Summary

The first phase of the Bodzia cemetery has the following characteristics: a number of big grave-pits placed in rows, oriented on a west-east axis, rectangular, burial plots framed with trenches containing one to three graves. This chapter places these features of the first phase of the cemetery at Bodzia in a wider context in particular by presenting a synthetic overview of the question of chamber graves of West and East Slav territories as well as east and south Scandinavia from the period between the 9th and 11th centuries. The earlier phase of use of the cemetery at Bodzia can be dated to the end of the 10th and first third of the 11th century. To this time belong the grave goods of a female burial from chamber grave 62/08 on the inhumation grave cemetery in Dziekanowice.

Keywords: 11th century; Bodzia cemetery; Dziekanowice; grave-pits; south Scandinavia; West Slav territory
