Recent archaeological research in Lednickie Lake

For several weeks now, a team of underwater archaeologists has been conducting research in Lednickie Lake. Archaeologists are searching the lake shoreline and islands in search of new archaeological sites.

During the first weeks dozens of very interesting movable monuments have already been located and several new archaeological sites have been identified. Among the interesting objects are medieval militaria such as axes, spear tokens, crossbow bolts and many others.

Objects of everyday use such as whole vessels or net floats were also found. The islands and shores of Lednickie Lake were densely or intensively inhabited in the early Middle Ages (10th – 13th centuries). And the largest lake island, Ostrów Lednicki, was one of the seats of Mieszko I and Bolesław Chrobry.

The lake is home to some of the most important underwater sites in Poland and there are more and more of them. The Warsaw Branch of SNAP, in cooperation with an experienced team from the Department of Underwater Archaeology at the Nicolaus Copernicus University, will be working on the project for several more weeks:
