The paper presents the formal analysis, description of the context of discovery and cultural and chronological connection of objects and artefacts, which was qualified to the Lusatian Culture. They have been raised in the course of archaeological excavation conducted in 2012 in the parish cemetery, which were functioning at the S. Sigismundt Church presumably in the 16th to 18th century. Archaeological excavation and architectural research in the church and the monastery complex of the S. Sigismundt in Czestochowa, street Krakowska 1 were carried out in 2011-2013, which was related to the implementation of the project "Rewitalizacja Zespołu Poklasztornego parafii św. Zygmunta w Częstochowie". Among the artefacts of the Lusatian Culture the products made of clay, i.e. ceramic vessels (157 fragments) and daub lumps (11 fragments) were dominated. Also nine metal artefacts were identified, of which seven made of bronze and two of iron. In the grave 945 flint artefact was occurred. Ceramic and metal artefacts on formal features can be combined with the people of the Lusatian Culture, and more specifically with highlighted by Marek Gedl częstochowsko-gliwickia subgroup of górnośląsko-małopolska group of Lusatian Culture which existed in the end of the Bronze Age and early Iron Age. Fragments of Lusatian Culture pottery have been found throughout the excavated area mostly as secondary deposits in early modern skeletal graves, and only for objects 4 and 8 as original deposits. Probably the objects and artefacts are damaged graves which are the remains of a large cemetery of the Lusatian Culture of the górnośląsko-małopolska group. In Częstochowa the cemetery of Lusa-tian Culture such as Częstochowa-Mirów, Częstochowa-Raków, Częstochowa-Wyczerpy Dol-ne, Częstochowa-Gnaszyn Dolny were identified and documented, which were located mostly on the periphery of the modern city of Częstochowa. Therefore, the discoveries made during the excavations in the parish cemetery which were functioning at the S. Sigismundt Church presumably in the 16th to 18th century complete the vision of the culture and enrich our knowledge about the people living in the late Bronze Age and early Iron Age on the territory of the contemporary centre of Czestochowa. 41-60
