Bodzia is one of the most fascinating archaeological discoveries of the post-war period in Poland. It is one of the few cemeteries in Poland from the time of the origins of the Polish state. The unique character of this discovery is mainly due to the fact that a small, elite population was buried there. The burials there included people whose origins were connected with the Slavic, Nomadic-Khazarian and Scandinavian milieus. For the first time the evidence from this area is given prominence.
This book is designed mainly for readers outside Poland. The reader is offered a collection of chapters, combining analyses and syntheses of the source material, and a discussion of its etno-cultural and political significance. The authors formulate new hypotheses and ideas, which put the discoveries in a broader European context.
Contributors are Wieslaw Bogdanowicz, Mateusz Bogucki, Andrzej Buko, Magdalena M. Buś, Maria Dekówna, Alicja Drozd-Lipińska, Wladyslaw Duczko, Karin Margarita Frei, Tomasz Goslar, Tomasz Grzybowski, Zdzislaw Hensel, Iwona Hildebrandt-Radke, Michal Kara, Joanna Koszalka, Anna B.

About the Author:

Andrzej Buko, Ph.D. (1978), is director of the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnology of the Polish Academy of Sciences and titular professor of University of Warsaw. Author over 280 papers concerning medieval archaeology, his book The Archaeology of Early Medieval Poland -3 editions in Poland (Warsaw 2005, 2006, 2011), and one abroad (Brill, 2008)- is the prime university handbook for early medieval archaeology in Poland.

Review:

"A cemetery at Bodzia was fully excavated during the years 2004 and 2007-9. This book, produced for international readers by an interdisciplinary team of twenty-five authors, presents the material from most possible perspectives. It is welcome to have so comprehensive a book accessible in English so soon. The book is richly illustrated, consists of twenty-five chapters... To sum up, this cemetery provides important evidence, and the book makes an interesting contribution to international research on burial customs, communication, and politics in northwestern Europe from approximately the mid-tenth to the mid-twelfth century."
Sæbjørg Walaker Nordeide, Speculum 92.4 (2017).
