Languages of publication
During archaeological works carried out in 2013 in the cloister garth of the former Benedictine Abbey on Łysiec researchers found a complex rain and ground water collection system. Its construction consisted in adding new elements to the existing structure (which continued to work). The main component of the system was a tank, described in sources and various studies as a well, which originated most probably in the first half of the 17th century, during an expansion of the abbey started by Abbot Bogusław Radoszewski Boxa and continued by Abbot Stanisław Sierakowski. The main tank was connected to a supplementary tank, built in the 18th century, and the system was based on the principle of communicating vessels. The last element of the system –the structure surrounding the tank and filtering water flowing from the cloister garth– was made in the second half of the 19th century or the first half of the 20th century. A well or tank may have existed in the abbey even earlier, but we do not know whether it had always been in the same place – the cloister garth in its present form was not built until the mid-15th century.
