This article presents the territorial development of a settlement complex which occurred over a span of time between 1700–1100 BC. In this period we observe a few “settlement episodes” and record the historical development of 25–30 generations of communities within the Trzciniec cultural circle. The site had a complex spatial structure that changed (modified) over time. A number of settlements, cemeteries and single graves were singled out/identified. The model of spatial development of a settlement complex in Polesie is based on the changes in pottery styles, planigraphy analysis and the results of 14C dating. A system defining/specifying the dynamics of settlement changes and the ritual space of the Trzciniec cultural circle in Polesie was created on the basis of this data. The period of use of these particular settlements ranged from 50/150 right up to 600 years. The largest settlement covered an area of ca 1 ha, the smallest 0,3–0,5 ha. The settlement complex in Polesie is unique in comparison to the other sites of the Trzciniec cultural circle. This complex was widespread, consisting of both the settlement and cemetery areas and it continued to be occupied continually for over 660 years
