Languages of publication
Excavations of a cemetery of the Lusatian Culture in Kraków-Bieżanów, uncovered in grave 417 a set of bronze ornaments and a necklace of beads: glass (350–366 pieces), amber (34) and bronze (4). The grave is dated to the Bronze Age IV (HaA2-HaB1; about 1150/1100–1000/950 BC). A typological (formal) analysis of the beads and an examination of the chemical composition of the glass in two cases (by the LA-ICP-MS method) indicated the north Italian workshops as the most likely place of their production. From there they reached Małopolska (Little Poland) by the “Amber Route”.
