Roman and Germanic brooches in Central Europe. (The archaeology of barbarians 2012)
Droberjar, E. ; Komoróczy, Balázs
The collected volume, which comprises papers from 49 authors, is thematically focused on brooches of the Iron Age, Roman Period and Migration Period. Brooches represent one of the most important categories of artefacts in protohistoric archaeology and their role in the acquisition of knowledge about barbarian communities is often irreplaceable. Celtic, Roman or Germanic brooches are remarkable, quantitatively representative and morphologically variegated finds. The wide spectrum of their information possibilities often goes beyond the potential of the other tangible evidence. They represent one of the buttresses of relative-chronological systems and contribute significantly to the detailed knowledge of many aspects of human cultures in the past, including the production procedures, trade and other forms of interactions, social differentiation or regional modifications of fashion trends. Most of the 33 chapters published in this volume were presented and vividly discussed in the VIII Protohistoric Conference, which was held in premises of the Palacký University in Olomouc in 2012. The authors strived to put together individual groups of new brooch finds from the barbarian territory in Central Europe (Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria and Poland) but also from peripheral parts of the Roman Empire, from provinces. In individual chapters they tried to outline several aspects of their documentation and classification and paid attention to analysis of selected categories. The authors publish in this volume new assemblages of finds and pay attention to various partial analyses of individual types or groups of brooches within a long period of time and with respect to current state of research.
Documentation, publication and interpretation of metal-detector finds as exemplified by Jobst type F4 brooches
Komoróczy, Balázs ; Vlach, Marek ; Zelíková, Michaela
Brooches represent a category of material evidence which in the past 25 years often became object of a very intensive metal detecting. In the Czech Republic, the number of amateurs who presently carry out this activity is much higher than the number of professional archaeologists. Archaeological science cannot omit the knowledge resulting from amateur metal-detecting finds, regardless of our personal opinion in this matter. We regard the documentation of all archaeological finds in our country as a professional duty of archaeological institutions, which is not contradictable by any reasonable arguments. On the contrary, when detectorists themselves or the general public prevent archaeologists from documenting these artefacts and making them accessible for professional study, this process gradually makes archaeology “blind”.
Roman fortifications on the barbarian territory in the Middle Danube Region during Marcomannic wars – introduction and perspectives
Komoróczy, Balázs
Intensive terrain and theoretical archaeological research aimed to the period of the Marcomannic wars continuously brings new information about the subject. Interpretation of the archaeological evidences of the Roman military impact into the Germanic territories (Moravia, Slovakia and Lower Austria) requires a complex approach. The main objective of the paper is to deliver a revised outline of already known Roman military fortification, complemented with up-to-date results of the systematical research in the area occupied by Roman military power on the cadastre of ceased village Mušov. Analyses of the available sources - together with the latest findings from the Germanic settlements dated to the periods around the Marcomannic wars - show extraordinary intensity, exceptional geographical extent and deep social impact of the Roman military power on the Marcomannian and Quadian territories during the period from 172 to 180 AD.
Hradisko (Burgstall) at Mušov in the light of results of excavations in 1994-2007
Komoróczy, Balázs
The essay analyses archaeological structures founded at locality Hradisko at Mušov. Detailed analysis of the fortification and internal buildings and their comparison with parallels from the territory of roman provinces are accompanied with summary of historical and archaeological evidence of the dating of these objects. Testimonies of the objects of the internal buildings at Mušov, but also the fortification and the collection of finds show that the Roman installation occurring here has been the most important in the barbaricum at the time of the Marcomannic wars. It was not conceived as a classical camp for the accommodation of large military units. This praesidium has provided a sufficiently protected space for, inter alia, all the craftsmen activities required, for the storage and distribution of supplies, for the coordination of the troops operating in the broad surroundings and for the accommodation of high-ranking visitors.
Barbarian settlements. Chronological, economical and historical aspects of their development in the light of new archaeological researches (The archaeology of barbarians 2007)
Droberjar, E. ; Komoróczy, Balázs ; Vachůtová, D.
The book is dealing with various aspects of research on problems of settlements and settlement finds from the Roman period and the Great migration period on the territory of Germanic tribes north of the Middle Danube and on the territory of Przeworsk culture. One of the chapters is dealing with the theme of Roman military impact in the time of Marcomannic wars. This volume includes the results of the recent research undertaken by scholars from Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland and presents new ideas looking this topic from individual methodological perspectives.
To the question of presence of roman military camps at the beginning of the 1st century AD at Mušov (cad. territory Pasohlávky, South Moravia District). Critical notes from the viewpoint of the Archaeology of Roman Provinces
Komoróczy, Balázs
The essay analyses archaeological structures founded at locality Mušov-Neurissen, which in previous publications had been ascribed to roman military camp leaded by Tiberius in 6 year AD against Marobud. Detailed analysis and comparisons with archaeological structures and findings from the territory of roman provinces have shown that for dating of these objects into beginning of the 1st century AD relevant parallels as well a historic reasons are missing. Their models appear also in later context and they are deduced from common military and civil roman architectonic forms. For that reason it is neccesary to count them upon within building structures constructed by roman army at Mušov during the Marcomannic wars.
