Remarkable Archaeological Discoveries at St. Peter and Paul's Church
A fragment of a house from the turn of the 13th and 14th centuries, along with an entrance to the basement, is the latest discovery by archaeologists in the courtyard of St. Peter and Paul's Church on Grodzka Street. The works are slowly coming to an end.
It Began with the Construction of the National Pantheon
The construction of the National Pantheon, combined with the revitalization of crypts in the church's basement, archaeological research in the courtyard, and foundation reinforcement, began in 2010. Over this time, archaeologists made numerous valuable discoveries.
The Final Season of Research
"This is the last season of research. Conservation and reconstruction works will begin this year. It has taken so long because there is a huge accumulation of objects from different periods, starting from the 9th century rampart, through various residential and economic objects, to the buildings" - says Prof. Jacek Poleski, an archaeologist and historian of the Polish Middle Ages, under whose supervision the archaeological research at St. Peter and Paul's Church is being conducted.
Discoveries from the Turn of the 13th and 14th Centuries
The archaeological research, which has been ongoing for 13 years, resulted in the discovery of thousands of objects, including fragments of decorated ceramics, Gothic vessels, floor tiles with decoration, arrowheads, coins, and animal figurines.
Conservation and Reconstruction Works
When the archaeological works are completed, conservators and then construction teams will step onto the church courtyard. However, the final concept of the National Pantheon pavilion will only be known after the completion of archaeological research.
"One thing is certain. What we managed to discover will be made available to the public" - promises Prof. Jacek Poleski.Wstecz
