The main problem discussed in the article is the protection of archaeological posts. The hitherto Polish literature on this subject has primarily been limited to bringing archaeological reservations to life and adapting thus posts for exhibition purposes, provided that they possess either ground forms (grave mounds, strongholds) or that wooden or brick relics are of a calibre that would guarantee them tourist attraction. The author points out a rich variety of reservations as well as a need to classify them and assess the effectiveness o f different exhibition forms in respect o f protecting the sites, which would make it possible to work out principal methods of operation for individual types o f archaeological posts. Still, in the author’s view, the main question in the protection o f sites is a necessity o f promoting social care in this field, which can only be achieved by revealing their value and significance as well as by making them open to the public. The author finds actions taken so far and based on legal resolutions and administrative sanctions to be ineffective and constiuting merely a link when compared with a magnitude o f the task. To exemplify this, the author mentions the Ślęża, a mountain in the Lower Silesia, on which ancient articles o f worship were discovered and examined. Until the works were not undertaken to tidy up the surrounding area and to arrange and mark tourist routes for visiting, then their presence in social mind was not fixed and it was not possible to secure necessary protection. As far as less spectacular archaeological monuments are concerned, the author suggests to work out forms of their permanent marking, e.g. by planting distinctive trees. Such actions should be undertaken in not too distant future, if only because of the fact that a planned campaing o f recording all archaeological posts would enrich conservation card indexes with a great number o f posts to be placed under protection.

  • Problem społecznej roli obiektow archeologicznych dobitnie uwypuklił Z. R a j e w s k i w artykule Archeologia w służbie społecznej, „Wiadomości Archeologiczne”, t. XXXIX, z. 4, 1975, s. 540—546. Rolę tę dostrzec można niejako w krzywym zwierciadle w realizacji prywatnych inicjatyw, pojawiających się tam, gdzie służba konserwatorska zapomina o swych obowiązkach. Świadczą one o istnieniu autentycznego zapotrzebowania społecznego. Por. Z. S k r o k , Chwalić czy ganić, ,,Z otchłani wiekow”, z. 1, 1976, s. 62—63.
