The author presents typological and stylistical analyses of remains explored in graves from the Roman Period during the rescue excavations on the route of Jamal gas-pipeline. It is not possible to determine cultural affiliation of the described materials from the cemetery at Otorowo. However, some elements allow to connect them with the Przeworsk culture. At the same time the other elements point on to links with Wielbark culture. It is much easier to establish chronological frames of the analyzed materials. The cemetery functioned in the Late Roman Period (from B2/C1 to C2 phase). In spite of not numerous inventories and badly preserved graves the Otorowo cemetery (because of its multicultural character) represents an important element in process of culture changes in Wielkopolska during the Roman Period.
