    Ritual Roots of Memory (About Things)
    (Fundacja Rzeszowskiego Ośrodka Archeologicznego, 2015) Karski, Kamil
    The aim of this paper is a presentation of possible interpretations of the ritual of salutatio, as well as function and cultural connotations of ancestral funerary portraits (imagines) in ancient Rome. For this purpose, a number of research theories related to memory studies, hermeneutical analyses and performativity of things are discussed. In light of these theories it is possible to attempt an interpretation of salutatio and imagines as sources for constructing identity and memory of the Roman community.

    Old Prussian “Baba” Stones: An Overview of the History of Research and Reception. Pomesanian-Sasinian Case
    (Fundacja Rzeszowskiego Ośrodka Archeologicznego, 2015) Szczepański, Seweryn
    This article concerns anthropomorphic stone sculptures (so-called Old Prussian “baba” stones) of the two tribal territories of Pre-Teutonic Prussia – Pomesania and Sasinia. Only in the nineteenth century scholars became interested in this phenomenon, although the first information on the functioning and location of “baba” stones may already be found in medieval and early-modern sources. In this paper an attempt is made to examine the role which the stone sculptures may have played among the pagan population of Prussia in the period of Christianization, as well as how they were adapted in the modern folk culture and what interpretations around them appeared in scientific circles. Also in today’s postmodern times the interest in Prussian “babas” is unabated and the sculptures often become an inspiration for artists and a subject of many interpretations.

    Sacrifices among the Slavs: Between Archeological Evidence and 19th Century Folklore
    (Fundacja Rzeszowskiego Ośrodka Archeologicznego, 2015) Wenska, Izabella
    This article discusses the subject of sacrifices among the Slavs using textual, archeological and ethnographic evidence. Although it is a well-known fact that there are not many textual sources concerning early medieval Slavic culture and religion, some aspects of their customs and rituals can be reconstructed by referring to folkloristic materials. According to many scholars, Slavic folk culture (especially that of Eastern Slavs) has preserved some traces of pre-Christian practices, but it is important to maintain a careful approach to ethnographic sources and avoid far-reaching interpretations of archeological evidence in their light. In spite of methodological difficulties, by critically combining different categories of sources it seems possible to offer new interpretations of Slavic beliefs.

    Drinking Horns in Old Norse Culture: A Tradition Under Examination
    (Fundacja Rzeszowskiego Ośrodka Archeologicznego, 2015) Hofmann, Anne
    By comparing archaeological finds with literary evidence this article seeks to reconstruct the role of drinking horns during the Viking Age. After an overview of drinking horns as represented in archaeology, several literary texts, predominantly Medieval Icelandic sagas, will be studied to shed further light on how drinking horns were seen and used. Drinking horns were used as a literary motif in these texts, but it can be demonstrated that they can also be linked to the archaeological evidence from the Viking Age, thus improving our understanding of the archaeological record.
