Research on the Polish-Rus borderland yielded very important finds typical of the Byzantine Commonwealth. Numerous fragments of silk from burials in Gródek will be presented, while from Czermno - commercial lead seals. Traditional description will be supplemented with modern technological analyses. The Polish-Rus borderland was significantly affected in the mid-13th c. by the Mongolian dominance. The double grave from Czermno is probably the witness of these events. The comprehensive analysis of this discovery will be discussed. Until recently, the archaeology of the Polish-Rus borderland was neglected. The three sessions show the dynamics of currently implemented interdisciplinary and international research.
