At the block of the Bronze Age and early Iron Age the attention is paid to the sets of the jewelry of the Lusatian culture, weapons (arrow-heads), tools (hatchets) from the burial-ground in Grudziądz-Owczarki, separated findings and treasures (from nearby Świerkocin), as well as face-like urns of the Pomeranian culture.
