SITE 25 OF THE CEMETERY AT PRUSIEK, GMINA SANOK, PODKARPACKIE VOIVODESHIP. A NOTE ON THE MIGRATION OF THE PRZEWORSK CULTURE POPULATION INTO THE AREA OF THE POLISH CARPATHIAN MOUNTAINS IN THE EARLY ROMAN PERIOD
The area of the Polish Carpathians has so far produced no sepulchral finds of the Przeworsk culture which could be dated without any doubt to the Roman period. Site 25 in the cemetery at Prusiek, gmina Sanok, is the first discovery of this kind in the area. The four cremation urn graves found there belong to Phase B2/C1 and C1a of the Roman Period. Their inventory shows direct indebtedness to the eastern zone of the Przeworsk culture. In effect, the find in the Prusiek cemetery can be taken as a clear proof of the expansion of the Przeworsk culture bearers in the direction of the Upper Tisa basin.
