Researchers excavating archaeological sites near the villages Gąski and Wierzbiczany in the Kuyavia region, North-Central Poland, came to a conclusion that Roman soldiers were present there. Unique finds of Roman cavalrymen’s equipment and soldier uniform’s parts never before found outside the Roman Empire seem to back up this thesis.
Archaeologists uncovered skeletal and cremation burials dating to 1st Cent. BC – 1st Cent. AD in Wierzbiczany, North Poland. The site is believed to be a component of a network of sites associated with a transregional settlement complex of Germanic tribes.
Archaeologists conducting excavations at an Iron Age settlement in Pełczyska, South Poland, discovered a number of artefacts that indicate the presence of Germanic and Celtic peoples in the area. Among the finds are numerous fibulae, coins, and fragments of glass vessels.
