The presented archaeological site is located on a small island on Lake Święte in the south-eastern part of Olsztyn Lake District between the villages of Kurki and Swaderki in the territory of a local landscape park. The mentioned island covers the area of not more than 800 m2 and reaches the highest point of 2 meters above the water table. Archaeological finds were recorded there in 2007 during the survey undertaken by the team of archaeologists from the local society of “Pruthenia.” Encouraged by these discoveries researchers conducted sequentially in 2007 and 2008 topographic and underwater surveys. Finally preliminary excavations yielded many pottery remains as well as flint, bone and antler tools. Those fruitful results persuaded the archaeologists from the Institute of Archaeology of the University of Warsaw to get back on the island in 2010. During the ex- cavations various interesting deposits and finds were recorded. Among them we can distinguish fragments of pottery, bones and antler remains accompanied by many stone and flint tools dated back widely from the Late Neolithic until the Early Iron Age. A recent analysis allows to conclude that the discussed site is a typical seasonal settlement, naturally defensive and water-related. It was occasionally occupied by the habitants representing the Late Neolithic/Early Bronze (Ząbie-Szestno Type) and the West Balt Barrow Culture cultural model.
