Excavation of the early medieval cemetery at Bodzia north of Włocławek uncovered the grave of a warrior who had been buried with his belt and sword. The belt had a strap-end with engraved marks, among which the author has identified letters of the Glagolitic script and the bident sign of the Rurikids. The mark at the top of the right prong of the bident, once considered to be a cross, gave rise to the author’s original hypothesis that the bident represented Svyatopolk, son-in-law of king Boleslaus the Brave. The mark at the top of the prong has now been identified as the hammer of Mjolnir, a symbol of the Norse god Thor, leading the author to retract his original interpretation.
