Abstract:

This paper presents preliminary archaeological data and two 14C readings for two of the eight pits excavated in 1998 in the settlement (site 5) of Mierzanowice culture at Sietesz (Przedgórze Rzeszowskie). Both pits provided a rich inventory of specific artefacts along with an adequate amount of charcoal fragments for HC dating. In particular pit la/98 yielded two distinct artefact inventories. The older one, referred to the early phase of Mierzanowice culture, includes some potsherds showing features correlated with the Corded Ware culture. Such unusual occurrence provided new data for re-evaluating the so far rejected hypothesisof a direct relationship between the Corded Ware and Mierzanowice cultures. The other group of finds, dated at 3555±60 yr BP, is composed by sherds assigned to the late phase of the Mierzanowice culture on the basis of typological comparison with finds uncovered in nearby archaeological sites. The fill of pit 3/98, which consists of only one archaeological unit, was dated at 3720±70 yr BP. The recovered assemblage of artefacts was judged of great interest because it includes elements previously reported for distinct evolution phases of differentcultural groups. The data so far gathered from the ongoing investigations at the settlement of Sietesz support the view of an independent origin and development of the Mierzanowice culture in the studied settlement microregion and in the loess uplands nearby Cracow
