The first man settled in Witów, lying in a distance of 4 km from Koszyce, as early as several thousand years ago. The first archaeological finds from this area are dated back to that time — ca. 5 thousand years ago.
The local hill on the river was a perfect place to settle. It had its natural defensive features, which were eagerly used by our ancestors who founded subsequent settlements in the Witów area. They left their traces there: vessels, tools, ornaments.

The first man settled in Witów, lying in a distance of 4 km from Koszyce, as early as several thousand years ago. The first archaeological finds from this area are dated back to that time — ca. 5 thousand years ago.
The local hill on the river was a perfect place to settle. It had its natural defensive features, which were eagerly used by our ancestors who founded subsequent settlements in the Witów area. They left their traces there: vessels, tools, ornaments. All this helps us imagine today what the living conditions were like at that time and enables us to recreate the history of Witów that dates back to several thousand years ago.
Archaeologists appeared in Witów as early as the 1920s. It was then that the treasure consisting of more than a dozen gold Roman coins known as solidii, were found. The treasure is now kept at the Archaeological Museum of Kraków and is also presented on our website (hoard from Witów).
The Koszyce Land Museum mostly houses exhibits from the excavation research directed by Józef Marciniak, PhD, in the years 1961–1963. As a result of this research, a multi-cultural site with settlement traces of Neolithic, Bronze Age (Lusatian culture) and Roman period (Przeworsk culture) communities were revealed.
The presented pot comes from the Bronze Age and early Iron Age. It is large and more than 4 metres high. Under the inlet, it is decorated with holes for fingers.
