Languages of publication
The main issue of this paper is to identify men-warriors within the Cracow-Sandomierz Group of Corded Ware culture burials and attempt to reconstruct combat techniques undertaken by them. To achieve this goal, a comprehensive analysis of selected burials has been conducted. These selected burials had to meet strict criteria such as: particular body arrangement, sex, age, and presence of certain grave goods, particularly weapons. The examination of differences within grave goods and relations between their categories, as well as sex, age, and body arrangement of the deceased clearly shows that the Cracow-Sandomierz group of Corded Ware culture encompassed a specific pattern of identity strongly related to manhood, possession of arms and, most likely, armed combat.
