The burial ground in Odry was a place of calling tribal gatherings in stone circles, so-called things and a place to bury the dead of the Goths population, who settled here around 70/80 BC after arriving from the areas of Scandinavia. Around 200 they left the area of Pomerania, going on a further trip to the south.
