Chycina test pit excavations in 2019 – background

Chycina is a small village in western Poland, today inhabited by approximately 100-120 people. The village is first recorded in written sources dated to the early fourteenth century, but previous archaeological finds indicate that the local area has been inhabited since prehistory. However, historic maps show that the area where the 2019 test pits were sited was without building coverage in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

As one of the consequences of the Second World War, Chycina and Lubuskie province, previously in Germany, became part of Poland.
