Chapter Summary

The chronology and location of the cemetery at Bodzia and especially its evident connections with the nearby stronghold in Włocławek allow the reader to treat the necropolis as a facility used by a community functioning in the first Piast state. The cemetery at Bodzia is located near the eastern border of the last-mentioned area. The cemetery discovered at Bodzia does not represent any of the known trends in funerary culture. Judging by their quantity, they were an important element of the cultural system of the community using the earlier cemetery at Bodzia, but they are not enough to consider the necropolis as typical for the 'home' culture of the Piast monarchy. The cemetery discovered at Bodzia has become an important source of information for the discussion on the changes in the elite funerary culture in the Vistula basin in the 11th century.
