On the 3rd of May 1656 the Swedish army attacked Golancz Castle. In an attempt to defend the castle Polish gentry, clergy and peasants rose against the army but they failed and now archaeologists believe that there could be up to 80 of their bodies buried in this mass grave.
Artur Rozanski, from the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, said, “It’s an extremely interesting but also a tragic discovery. We found a battle grave in the Lower Castle’s yard. So far we managed to uncover remains of seventeen people buried in three layers.”
