During the second season of excavations on the early neolithic site in Zwieczyca very interesting and rare objects were found. The first one was discovered in the 'long pit' of the linearbandceramic culture, while the second one - almost identical - in the cultural layer near the 'long pit'. This objects are considered mostly in their symbolical aspects for the early neolithic communities in Europe. They are called 'double axes' (ger. Doppelhacken, doppelschneidige Hacken) and belong to the rarest finds in neolithic Europe. Currently we know about 40 finds from the whole dispersion area of the Linear Band Pottery culture. The both objects from Zwieczyca enrich therefore the amount (which is still very poor) of known artifacts of this type and constitute their new eastern appearance border. The ceramic finds from the long pit, where one of the objects was found, can be dated to the end of the note phase of the Linearbandceramic culture in Poland.
