An LBK village dated to the late 5th millennium bc situated on a loess‐covered plateau near Cracow in southern Poland. Excavations by Sarunas Milisauskas in the early 1970s revealed thirteen longhouses of varying sizes. The largest, house 6, was over 40 m long and was interpreted as the residence of a high‐status family. Obsidian and Bükk pottery from Hungary was found.
