MetadataShow full item record
In 1982 the castle in Radoszyce near Końskie, province of Kielce, was the subject of archeological and architectural investigations. The field-work resulted in an article (being published at the moment) devoted to the castle architecture and also in another paper (in press in our magazine no.9)dealing with the initial analysis of the movable material of relics. Whereas, the object of the present study consists of other problems resulted from investigations led in Radoszyce. The first one is related with treasure-lumber-room situated in the area of the old castle. This structure during initial examinations was said to have been erected on the turn of the XVI and X VIIth century i.e. in the period when Radoszyce became a centre of big starosty district. In spite of many significant modifications the architectural mass of this late Rennaissance castle is still readable and the treasury-lumber-room itself needs more detailed research. It is of great importance since stone treasury-lumber-rooms of the XVIth and XVIth centuries are a real rarity. The second problem stressed in this article is a description of a wooden well found in excavation no. X-XA. Dug in the second half of the XVII1th century and of shell construction it was burried on the turn of the XVIIIth and XIXth century. The third problem also resulting from the effects of studies in Radoszyce was mentioned here as well. This castle played a role of so called foreststation of the king Władysław Jagiełło (1386-1434), The monarch did not like capital Cracow and the whole period of his long ruling spent on travelling. There were established routes leading in Polish and Lithuanian territories whose "loops" started and ended in the favourite residence of Jagiełło i.e. in the castle of Nowe Miasto Korczyn» Radoszyce situated on the route of royal journeys was visited 15 times by the king during his reign Among other stations of Władysław Jagiełło the following places should be listed here: in Little Poland (Jedlnia, Niepołomice, Przyszów end Żuków), in Russia (Medyka, Gliniany , Dobrostany), In Great Poland (Brodnia and Przedbórz) lying in the border of Great Poland and Little Poland. The author analyses the knowledge about the studied buildings which have distinct residential but at the same time fortified features. He finally concludes that we know very little about them. He suggests that the better knowledge of Władysław Jagiełło's favourite castles and fortified manors the better comprehension of his ruling system.
