(ORDO NEWS) — On the territory of the village of Chodlik, which is located in Poland, in the Lubelskie Voivodeship, there is a fairly large settlement of Slavic origin. Previously, it was protected by three huge ramparts and was located on 8 hectares of land.
It was created between the 8th and 9th centuries. This monument was opened more than a hundred years ago. Experts say that the settlement was quite rich, but at the same time there is no mention of it in any of the written sources.
This is reported by Nauka w Polsce.
Work in this area has been actively carried out over the past two years. During this time, quite a lot of artifacts were discovered and the last find was a strange silver statuette, which dates back to about the 9th century AD. In addition, scientists have found a huge number of ceramic objects, clothing and jewelry, bronze hairpins and pendants.
Nevertheless, it was the statuette that attracted the attention most of all. Its size is 5 centimeters. She represents a certain character, whose hands are folded on his chest, either palms to each other, or he is holding something. The facial expression could not be seen, but the toes are clearly visible.
Archaeologists today cannot say exactly what purpose this statuette had. In other studies, there is also no mention of such an artifact. The experts also added that the rest of the finds date back to the 8-10th century, which once again confirms that no mistake was made over the existence of the settlement.
