Summary / Abstract:

ENThe article presents an analysis of some unique imported objects recently found in Lithuania. These include three T-shaped hinge brooches and one symmetrical brooch, as well as some other rare pieces from the Lielupe Basin. These new finds show that the region experienced rapid social, economic and cultural change, and the power struggles can be viewed as efforts to control the major inland waterways, namely, the Mūša and Lielupe rivers. In addition, the structure of settlement in the region - forming micro-regions - shows that the communities of certain areas were involved in administrative and cultural contacts on various levels. The communities that managed to control this region also commanded access to the Baltic Sea. The material culture of this region reflects extensive inter-regional contacts and shows that during the early Migration Age a stratum of people holding high social status developed here, and a variety of insignia were imported for their needs.
