The latest book by dr. Aleksandra Pankiewicz deals with early medieval pottery on the Polish-Czech border. This area itself is extremely important from the perspective of history of both countries, while the borderland problem is an extremely interesting topic in scientific literature. It indicates the area in which there is a kind of turmoil – intensified exchange of people, thoughts and material culture. The pottery in the title of this book belongs to the latter. First of all, it is a source very sensitive to any cultural changes, and in addition, in the archaeological research tradition, it has an extremely rich literature, in which the author navigates efficiently.
In this book, the study of ceramics mentioned above is only a introduction to more insightful and broader considerations.
