THE STROKED BAND POTTERY CULTURE, THE MALICE GROUP, THE MORAVIAN PAINTED POTTERY CULTURE, THE OCICE GROUP, OR PERHAPS THE UPPER SILESIAN GROUP OF THE LENGYEL CULTURE? REMARKS ON TAXONOMY OF MATERIALS OF THE LENGYEL CULTURE IN THE UPPER BASIN OF THE O
Languages of publication
The author reviews the actual state of research on the Langyel culture in Upper Silesia focusing mainly on taxonomic issues. He rejects terms 'the Jordanów group' and 'the Ocice group' as proposed in the literature, links of Upper Silesian Lengyel material with the Moravian Painted Pottery culture, and - most of all - connecting the earliest finds of that type with the Stroked Band Pottery culture and the Malice culture (group). Instead, he puts forward a hypothesis that the Lengyel type pottery of Phases I through IV constitute a certain unity termed by him as 'the Upper Silesian Lengyel group' (hornoslezská lengyelská skupina). The author underlines the fact that the analyzed phenomenon reflects the local development of the Lengyel culture in Upper Silesia (in the upper Basin of the Odra River).
