Recent studies helped to refine the provenance (recorded as Zatom, former distr. Międzychód) of vessels in keeping of the State Archaeological Museum in Warsaw as Nowy Zatom, comm. and distr. Międzychód, woj. wielkopolskie. The specimens had been unearthed in 1931 near the “Lubitz farm” during construction work. A site sketch made on this occasion also shows the location of some hundred or so Lusatian culture graves discovered earlier in the same area. Unfortunately the review of archival records and literature has failed to identify any reference to such a cemetery at Nowy Zatom. The vessels passed to the State Archaeological Museum in Warsaw thanks to an intervention of Zygmunt Zakrzewski, Inspector of Prehistoric Monuments for the Wielkopolska Province
