The goal of archaeology as a scientific discipline – in the classical approach used since the mid-19th century – has been to learn about the history of societies from the earliest times to the appearance of the first written sources. This definition, although still valid, has begun to undergo significant revision in the last half-century. First, in European areas, the acquisition of sources using the method of archaeological research covered medieval and early modern times, then, gradually, moved closer and closer to the present day. These shifting boundaries were not sharp, just as the boundaries between historical eras are blurred.

In the current volume of Archaeologia Polona, we present a set of articles with varied content, presenting archaeological echoes of wars that have swept through the areas of Central Europe in recent times.
