Abstract:

This paper is an attempt to present the economy in Pomerania in the Early Roman Period applying a model that was used before by J. Ostoja-Zagórski and M. Henneberg for fortified settlements of the Biskupin type. It is also an attempt to answer the question of whether the exploitation of the environment and the need to find new areas to settle were the cause of the migration of the population of Pomerania to the south-east. The hypothesis constructed in the course of research is that the exploitation of the environment was not the cause of "the relocations of the population".First, the average size of a single group of people living in Pomerania in the Early Roman Period was established, as well as and the amount of time that such a group could spend on working in a year, depending on whether the day work lasted 6, 8 or 10 hours. The efficiency of agriculture, farming, gathering and hunting, as well as of non-agricultural activities has been checked. The approximate duration of activities related to these branches of economy has been also determined.In summary, the time required to complete each activity has been compared to the time the population had at its disposal throughout the year. The results of the analysis have enabled to prove the hypothesis formulated at the beginning, that non-economic factors, rather than the economical difficulties in living in that area, were the cause of migrations of a part of the population from Pomerania to the south-east in the B2/C1 phase
