Languages of publication
Assemblage of iron artifacts from 'Góra Slupsko' hillfort, Site 2, at Kostkowice, Kroczyce commune, includes 9 axe-like bars and a cavil. It was found in another place than axe-like bars published in 2001 (ibid. 36, 39-47). Therefore it can be assume that both assemblages constitute two parts of the same 'hoard'. Iron artifacts (nos. 1-9) are the latest finds of axe-like bars referred in the literature as Lesser Poland or Vistula type. In the scope of shape and forms of butt and leaf they represent all variants (A and B), variations (1-3), and groups (a-c) according to classification of E. Zaitz. Assemblage includes also a cavil. Analogies to the described artifacts are known from Bohemia, Moravia, Slovakia, and Slovenia. They are dated to the 8th-11th centuries. The presented assemblage was probably cached Pin 11th C. It corresponds with the Central European Horizon of iron 'hoard' dated to the 8th-9th centuries.
