A beautifully preserved fortified settlement which is more than 2500 years old

It is the best known archaeological reserve in Central Europe which protects the old defensive village from the turn of the Bronze and Iron Age that was inhabited by people of the Lusatian culture. It was originally discovered in 1933. The museum in Biskupin is open all year round. The settlement of the people of the Lusatian culture, which was found on the peninsula on Lake Biskupin, dates back about 2500 years.

Already before World War II there was an archaeological reserve here, constantly expanding, it now covers an area of 24 hectares. In the exhibition pavilion there are exhibits of tools, utensils, ornaments, weapons, remnants of crops and bones of domestic animals that have been found in Biskupin. However, the most impressive features are the original sections and the reconstruction of the wooden fortified settlement from the 8th and 7th century BC.

There are two parallel rows of huts (eight in each row) surrounded by a wooden breakwater and a defensive rampart with a gate, a watch tower and a drawbridge. Each year the museum organises the largest archaeological festival in Europe. In 2011 the 17th Archaeological Festival was organised under the slogan “Greece – the Birthplace of Europe” and was held between 17th and 25th September.
