In September 2005 during rescue excavation at the site 9 in Swinna Poreba on the border of the Middle and Small Beskidy Mts. in the northern part of the West Carpathians in Poland an object with Neolithic pottery was discovered. Technological similarity of all fragments, ornaments as well as other feature permitted to prove that all fragments belong to one vessel. No other relics were found in the object. Neither any material that could be dated by the radiocarbon method were found there. A slightly diagonal irregular roughness of the outer and inner surface of the vessel is an element that point explicitly at the Baden culture. The fact of discovering only one vessel, so as it was in the case of grave finds of the Baden culture in Lesser Poland (Zeslawice), as well as a good state of the preserved pottery speaks for a grave find. Probably a group of seasonally acting members operate on the territory of the Beskidy Mts. This might have been a pastoral group, one member of which died somewhere far from whole year base settlements situated from the northern side in Lesser Poland and Zips and Liptov in Slovakia from the southern.
