The archaeological heritage of Poland is very rich and diverse symbolizing various cultural traditions and ethnic and national groups. At the same time, Poland has been subject to various forms of external pressure and changes on all frontiers, and at times it has even ceased to exist as an independent state. The repeated threats to the Polish national identity have heightened public awareness and appreciation for the need to preserve and protect the past, which has influenced the development of archaeological resource management. This chapter explores the management of archaeological resources in Poland in the twentieth century in a brilliant way. It also highlights the endangered past that affected archaeological resources in Poland. The chapter reviews the act of 2003, which is an important contribution with respect to the protection of archaeological resources in Poland.
