The Regional Museum in Krotoszyn has in its collections four archaeological objects dated to the Roman Period: a copper alloy brooch, type A.166 (Fig. 1:1, two iron spearheads, types XV and XXIII/1 according to Piotr Kaczanowski (Fig. 1:2.3), and an iron knife (Fig. 1:4). The provenance of these artefacts is unknown. They may have been offered to the museum by Dionizy Kosiński PhD, qualified archaeologist and history teacher at the secondary school in Krotoszyn who in late 1960s and early 70s excavated a number of sites in his local area (now Krotoszyn County). This conclusion is supported by the brooch, type A.166, variant Retkinia – brooches of this form cluster in the western part of the Przeworsk Culture territory. Marks of a fire patina observed on the spearheads suggest they were recovered from a grave-field.
