The article relates about two (No 5 and 6) graves of the Lublin-Volhynian Culture (LVC), discovered during excavations in 2004 at site 2 in Ksiaznice, Pacanów commune. One of this graves contained skeleton which has been identified as Senilis male. Inventories included rich flint artifacts, three clay vessels and an unique copper axe, the Felsógalla type, Szendró variant, or a form between the Hajduszoboszlo and Sakalhat variants. The second grave contained only seven vessels. This grave represented an extremely rare group of symbolical burials - cenotaphs. On the base of ceramic and flint inventories, graves No5 and 6, like other burials from the LVC's cemetery at Site 2 in Ksiaznice - should be dated at phase IIla of this culture. The archaeological exploration and anthropological analysis of the LVC's burials carried out to date seem to support the thesis that Site 2 in Ksiaznice encompassed a short-term and possibly small family cemetery planned out with great care.
