Archaeological Museum in Gdańsk, ul. Mariacka 25/26
For almost a century – from the mid-19th century till the outbreak of World War II – artefacts from the area of present-day Ukraine were added to the collection of the Archaeological Museum in Krakow. Accidental finds and materials discovered during archaeological excavations were donated by Poles living in Volhynia, Red Ruthenia, Podolia, Bratslav and Kiev provinces, as well as scientists from Krakow who conducted research there. They helped to create the archaeology of Ukraine and contributed to expanding the knowledge concerning the prehistory and medieval period of the lands on the Dniester and Dnieper.
