Abstract: The so called "floor" from Wislica has an outstanding place among other medieval artefacts in Poland. Its latest history began at the break between 1959 - 1960 when the floor was discovered during archaeological excavations. The issues of its restoration remained complex and exceptional despite the fact that the work was preceded by all possible examinations and treatments. The greatest achievement of this project was matching the applied technology and technique of restoration with the historic fabric. The employed procedures might be suitable and applied either directly or by analogy in similar cases.
