The archaeological traces of the Roman-barbarian confrontations represent a specific group of information sources for understanding of complex aspects of the various interactions of the two profoundly distinctive worlds – Roman and barbarian. Despite the first evidences of the Roman presence come from more distant past, only during the last decade...
Article
The infilling of defense structures (ditches) of the Roman temporary camps in South Moravia (Czech Republic) were studied quantitatively to characterize the ditch‐filling processes, role of pedogenesis, and the effect of geological setting. Samples of soil and sediment were taken from ditch profiles at three sites in South Moravia, Czech Republic (...
Research Proposal
Full-text available
The potential of metal analyses for answering archaeological questions was recognised even in the early 19th century, for example, in order to provide information "about the time and place of manufacture of the antiquities" (v. Santen/Lisch 1844). Modern analytical methods allow the non-destructive extraction of large amounts of data directly "on s...

The study concerns the unique archaeological find of a silver jar lid, decorated using enamel technique. The find was made in South Moravia at Hradisko u Mušova, also known as Mušov-Burgstall, which is connected to the period of Marcomannic Wars (172-180 AD). At the moment of discovery, on the basis of art historical analysis, this unique artefact...

První čtyři století našeho letopočtu prostor středního Podunají zastihují ve výrazně bipolárním uspořádání. Sousedství dvou odlišných světů, Římské říše a germánských společností za jejími hranicemi, provází řada různých forem vzájemných interakcí od „mírových“ obchodních kontaktů až po rozsáhlé vojenské konfrontace. Zejména ty poslední zanechaly z...
Article
The Roman-barbarian interactions along the riverine borderline of the Middle Danube Limes exhibit a wide range of forms, from peaceful contacts and trading activities to full-scale military conflicts. The direct evidence of the latter type of events represents a specific source of archaeological information—generally referred to as temporary camps....

The middle and lower reaches of the rivers Morava and Dyje form corridors, which, as traffic axes, have shaped settlements since prehistoric times in the region of the Central Danube. The Germanic settlements were likewise aligned to these axes. The research on the presence of the Roman army north of the Central Danube takes account of the signific...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The impact of the Roman army in the territories north of the Middle Danube can be particularly seen in the core area of Germanic settlement along the middle reaches of the River Dyje and its tributaries the Svratka and Jihlava. In the surroundings of the Roman military base at Mušov-Burgstall several Roman temporary camps closely connected to the l...

Cut marks left on animal bones are commonly found at archaeological sites, and the analyses based on certain differences within their micromorphological structure might help in the material determination of an artefact used in the butchery process. We present a new method for differentiating cut marks made with stone and metal tools by examining th...

The human and animal osteological material from the poly-cultural site Jevišovka-Nová is dated back to several historical periods (Linear pottery culture, Moravian painted pottery culture, Únětice culture, La Tène culture, Roman Age, Migration period). This study aims to describe bones or other hard tissues anatomically and taxonomically, and to ob...

The osteological analysis of human and animal skeletal remains from polycultural site Pasohlávky – poloostrov was focused on the Únětice culture period, dated to about 2300–1700 BC. The anthropological analysis was aimed to estimate sex, age and stature of individuals using a broad spectrum of standard mor-phoscopic and metric methods, and to descr...
Article
This investigation focuses in detail on the analysis of discoveries in South Moravia – important sites from the Roman period in Pasohlávky and Mušov. Using X-ray fluorescence analysis and micro-analysis we help identify the techniques of enamel paint and give a thorough chemical analysis in details which would not be possible to determine by means...

The process of model building is one of the fundamental means of scientific reasoning and assessment of theoretical constructs. Most of the theoretical models in social sciences (specifically in archaeology) are formulated through the basic descriptive means of common language. Developments in IT during the last decades and its accessibility have m...

The ways of infilling archaeological objects are among the most common questions given to geoarchaeologists. Convenient subjects for the study of formation processes of archaeological terrain features (contexts) are V-shaped ditches. Their infilling is usually lithologicaly and texturally considerably variable with regular morphology and special ar...

The unique find of a copper alloy fitting, discovered during amateur metal detector survey, contributes to the study of the Roman Period north of the Middle Danube. The available information locates the findplace as the rocky NE promontory of Pavlov Hills, an area of the medieval fortification called Dívčí hrady. The fitting, possibly belonging to...
