1 – a bronze spur from Kopaniewo, complete, strongly corroded. It is decorated with five pairs of grooves and oval pits. In the Żak’s classification the spur corresponds to forms classified into group I variant A. Opinions on the origin of this type of spurs are divided: they are considered as Germanic, Slavic or western European as well as created under Balt or Carolingian influence;
2 – a bronze spur from Drawsko Pomorskie, incomplete, with traces of repair. It is decorated with grooves, vertical pits and stylised animal heads. In the Żak’s classification the spur corresponds to forms classified into group I variant B, whereas according to I. Gabriel and A. Janowski it belongs to a group with ear hooks (now broken).

1 – a chance find, probably in the 1980s, by the road to Łebień, found with fragments of decorated pottery and an iron knife.
2 – found accidentally or during a field survey of a stronghold located near Dalewo at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries with fragments of iron objects, pottery and animal bones.


Until recently the spurs were dated to the 6th century AD (Kopaniewo – the beginning of the 6th century, Drawsko – the end of the first half of the 6th century). Nowadays their chronology has been shifted to the 8th century AD (variant A – the first half of the 8th century, variant B-C – the second half of the 8th century).
