The area of the Western Baltic barrows culture, left by ancestors of Aestii from the South-Eastern Baltic region in La Tene, yields very scarce finds of bracelets. In the Roman time, bracelets emerge in Sambia on phase В1. Mapping of Kamieńczyk bracelets shows presence of their prototypes — armilla bracelets — only on two cemeteries in the north of Sambia. The same sites yielded finds of the first Kamieńczyk bracelets. Based on these very few finds, it would be quite premature to infer penetration of Kamienczyk bracelets' predecessors to the south, the area of Przeworsk Culture. Most likely, Kamienczyk bracelets derive from Sambian bracelets with tips in the form of paired globes.

Keywords: South-Eastern Baltic Sea region, La Tène, Roman Age, Aestii, bracelets, Wielbark culture.
