Gord (archaeology)
A gord is a medieval Slavic fortified wooden settlement, sometimes known as a burgwall after the German term for such sites. Gords were built during the late Bronze and early Iron Ages by the Lusatian culture (c. 1300–500 BCE, and later in the 8th–7th centuries BCE, in what is now Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, eastern Germany, Romania/Moldova, Belarus
Belarus
and western Ukraine. These settlements were usually founded on strategic sites such as hills, riverbanks, lake islands, or peninsulas. Construction and evolution[edit] A typical gord was a group of wooden houses built either in rows or in circles, surrounded by one or more rings of walls made of earth and wood, a palisade, and/or moats. Some gords were ring-shaped, with a round, oval, or occasionally polygonal fence or wall surrounding a hollow. Others, built on a natural hill or a man-made mound, were cone-shaped

Until recently it had a monopoly on suburban bus transport in Poland. Recently it has been broken up, with many new companies being privatized. Incidents[edit] PKS buses were involved in two major crashes in Poland. The first major accident happened in 1978, when 30 people died in an incident, in which two buses plunged from a bridge 18m into Żywiec Lake. The other incident is known as the Poland bus disaster of 1994, in which an overcrowded bus driving 10 km/h over the 50 km/h speed limit collided with a tree, and 32 people died
