These pages contain a brief summary of the most important
information on the reconstruction of the prehistoric settlement
and the activity
of the Dziejba Association.
The basic assumption of the „Settlement” project is a reconstruction
- as a large research of experimental archaeology - of an open settlement
from the Bronze Age, located in a place that currently shows conditions
of prehistoric colonization and built using accurate copies of tools
from those times. Every activity following this direction is a sum
of studies of an archaeological and technical literature, discussions
with scientists from the Jagiellonian University’s Institute Of
Archaeology, results of earlier Dziejba Association’s activities
and also a grand care about the smallest details of reconstruction,
which makes this settlement unparalleled realistic.
All the work made at building the Settlement using such tools as
bronze axes, cusps with flint blades, little flint saws, peckers
and diggers made of wood and bones is precisely evidenced in terms
of quality and quantity delivering a lot of interesting and reliable
Settlement is raised during the summer months by volunteers belonging
to Dziejba Association - students of Cracow’s colleges
(UJ, AGH, AP, KSW), students of local high schools and doctoral
students interested in project, and also students and high school
students coming from other parts of Poland.
