Excavations of the early medieval stronghold at Milicz in Lower Silesia revealed, in a layer of burning dated from the end of the 10th to the mid 11th c., an extensive group of luxury items associated with ethnically foreign elites of the Piast state. Of particular interest is a set of objects made of non-ferrous metals, including gilded silver artifacts combining heart-shaped and palmette motifs in the decoration. The fittings must have decorated an ornamental belt, horse harness or bag. The assortment and execution of objects from this set, which is of considerable value from a Lower Silesian perspective, can be referred to artifacts known from the great centers of the Piast domain, such as Gniezno and Lednica; it thus highlights the position held by Milicz and its importance in the contemporary state.
