The material for the radiocarbon analyses presented here comes from three pits, discovered in 1992 on the settlement (site 2) of Lusatian Culture at Maciejowice, Siedlce Voivodeship. This settlement is a part of the settlement complex of the population of this culture, together with a cemetery on site 1. The necropolis is partly overlapping a settlement located in the northern part of this site. This complex is dated to III -V Periods of the Bronze Age and the Hallstatt Period, while the data obtained so far do not enable us to determine chronology of settlements later than to V Period of the Bronze Age. The area occupied by the settlements (one settlement?) can be estimated at ca. 6 ha. Coals were collected from objects 82, 85, and 101. Pit 82 occured in the western part of the settlement at site 2, and pits 85 and 101 were located ca. 30 m north of that place. In the case of the last two, there has been noted a distinct layer of grey-brown sand with fragments of ceramics of Lusatian Culture overlapping the pits. The inventories of the pits comprised mostly ceramics, animal bones, flints, lumbs of baked daub, and burnt stones. In object 85 at the lowest depths there has been found a bronze spearhead. The radiocarbon dates obtained for the particular objects are as follows: object 82 - 2900 +- 80 BP; object 85 – 2840 + -50 BP; object 101 - 2600 +- 90 BP.
