The Late Stroked Pottery culture in Bohemia in the light of the collection from Prague-Nové Butovice
Šmolková, Markéta ; Dobeš, Miroslav (advisor) ; Popelka, Miroslav (referee)
This BA thesis is focused on a set of late-neolithic stroked pottery objects from the 5th cultural phase discovered in Praha Stodůlky ("Nové Butovice"). On the basis of a comparison between the vessels and relief decorations with a set of 5th phase stroked pottery from the Bylany site (district Kutná Hora) we analyzed the pottery material and made an overall assessment of the set. The analysis proved the origin of the set to be in this late and final stage of the stroked pottery period and excluded its original classification as a specimen of the Lengyel culture. Further, we ascertained 15 new types of relief decoration (the focus was on vessel bellies and handles) a likely two new shapes, beaker-shaped and pot-shaped. The pottery was documented in drawing as well as in photographs, whereby new types of relief decoration were assessed separately. In the set there were also several fragments in the form of earlier or later intrusions. The findings as a whole also included polished industries, which were then documented in drawing and in photographs, as well as fragments of chipped industries, many fragments of daub and a set of bone fragments. All these were, however, merely counted and catalogued in the summarizing database of findings. Besides the pottery set analysis itself, the thesis also...
The beginnings of textile production in the Czech Republic. Selected questions of textile production practised on the territory of the Czech Republic at the end of the Stone Age.
Korteová, Judita ; Dobeš, Miroslav (advisor) ; Březinová, Helena (referee)
This work assesses the evolution of textile production in the Czech lands during the Eneolithic, a period that is the earliest source of broader archaeological information for the study of textile manufacturing. The basis for the study is provided above all by archaeological finds of textile tools (spindle whorls, weights, spools and awls) that are evaluated within individual archaeological cultures in terms of quantity, shape, size and function, archaeological context and chronological development. This is supplemented by a survey of fragmentary textiles and their imprints dating from the Stone Age in the Czech Republic. Another important source of information is provided by findings from research into Eneolithic pile-dwelling settlements around Alpine lakes that have provided numerous finds of archaeological textiles as well as textile-making tools and tool fragments that have not been found in the Czech lands. An interesting comparative set of artefacts is provided by the objects found in the possession of the mummy of Ötzi dating from the Middle Eneolithic Period. The second part of the work focuses on the experimental testing of several hypotheses formulated on the basis of the study of archaeological materials. The experiments focused on the potential of working bast fibre from trees as an...
A Funnel Beaker culture settlement at Líbeznice
Sosnová, Anežka ; Dobeš, Miroslav (advisor) ; Popelka, Miroslav (referee)
The polycultural settlement area in Libeznice (Prague-East district) represents a relatively large complex of many different settlement structures, mostly of Funnel Beaker culture and Hallstat period, as well as three Unetice culture tombs and a skeleton burial probably of La-Téne period. An archaeological excavation, which was caused by the construction of a ring road, took place in the years 2008 and 2009. During the works several dozens of settlement structures of Funnel Beaker culture were uncovered - a large open settlement with a number of long houses and other structures. This thesis follows my bachelor thesis, where a chosen group of sixteen structures is analysed. In this thesis a remaining group of nineteen settlement structures is dealt with and published and its ceramic artefacts and also chipped stone industry, polished stone industry and bone industry are analysed in detail. On the basis of its morphological features coincident with previous results was this settlement dated to the younger period of Funnel Beaker culture, i.e. to the salzmünde phase, followed by a small collection of ceramics of Boleráz phase (Baden culture).

Residential structure of the area of a Funnel beaker culture at multiculture settlement at Velké Přílepy.
Juřinová, Šárka ; Dobeš, Miroslav (advisor) ; Popelka, Miroslav (referee)
in English The submitted thesis adresses the processing of material culture from the archaeological excavation in Velké Přílepy (district of Prague-west), where the settlement of Funnel Beaker culture was uncovered. The study is a sequel to my bacheolor's thesis (defended in 2010) which evaluated only one part of the excavated settlement and significantly improves its corpus of finds. Therefore there is now a complete analysis of the whole widespread settlement area in an open position without any fortification. Close to sixty structures were documented and dated (based on ceramic analysis) to the Siřem and Salzmündphase of Funnel Beaker culture on this researched area. Thanks to the excavation, an exceptionally rich collection of ceramic production from the Early Eneolithic period (10 105 pieces altogether) exists. Other settlements belonging to the Funnel Beaker culture in the vicinity of Velké Přílepy are also considered in this thesis. Together with this settlement, they create a unique area of settlements of the aforementioned culture.
The hilltop settlement in Praha-Dubeč - Rohožník in the context of other sites of the Řivnáč culture in the microregion of Rokytka and Botič creeks.
Klímová, Ivana ; Dobeš, Miroslav (advisor) ; Popelka, Miroslav (referee)
(in English): Master thesis is focuced on analysis of polyculture hilltop settlement Dubeč - Rohožník in context of Eneolithic and Řivnáč culture. Archaeological artefacts originated from B. Novotný excavations of 1950 were analysed and results are compared with other řivnáč culture settlements in the region.
Bell Beakers on Iberian Peninsula and in Czech republic. Analysis of similarities and differences in the manifestations of this culture.
Brathová, Gabriela ; Dobeš, Miroslav (advisor) ; Limburský, Petr (referee)
This thesis deals with Bell Beaker Culture at the end of the Eneolithic in two areas of its extension, in the Czech Republic and the Iberian Peninsula. We consider it as a one culture; however we can observe some differences mostly based on different domestic cultural background. Differences and similarities in manifestation of culture derived from an analysis of its various aspects in both areas such as settlement structure, funeral rite and material culture, of which the most characteristic are decorated Bell Beakers and archery equipment coming from the graves. This work is devoted to the characterization of Bell Beaker society and evolution of opinions on this phenomenon too.
Prehistoric settlement of Levý Hradec (Central Bohemia)
Vávrová, Barbora ; Bláhová, Zuzana (advisor) ; Dobeš, Miroslav (referee)
The thesis presents the results of processing the excavation of the acropolis of Levý Hradec (district of Praha-západ). The excavation took place between 1940-1954 under the leadership of Ivan Borkovský (ARÚ ČSAV in Prague). The hillfort is known as the Early Medieval center, however it was notably settled during the prehistory as well. Unfortunately, these findings have not been processed yet. The main aim of this thesis was the identification of prehistoric cultures on the basis of pottery collection, assignment of the extent of settlement in particular cultures and effort to date the prehistoric phases of fortification on the basis of original documentation and the pottery findings. Moreover, there was the attempt to identificate the excavated objects in documentation and cross connect the pottery with documentation.
Human remains on the settlement sites of the Czech neolithic period
Kovaľ, Juraj ; Popelka, Miroslav (advisor) ; Dobeš, Miroslav (referee)
This study is thematically linked to the analysis of findings of the Czech Eneolithic period. The essence of this work lies in the comprehensive processing of all types of findings of human remains in the Czech Neolithic dwellings including the yet unpublished, but highly significant findings of Prague-Liboc and Prague-Ruzyně. Comparing the variety of the human remains handling in the environment of Neolithic and Eneolithic cultures, burials within settlements, usually present simultaneously with regular burials in dedicated grounds and often considered abnormal, appear to be an important occurance in the period. We obtained a picture illustrating the uniqueness of the Linear Pottery culture and the Stroked Pottery culture concernig the treatment of human remains in settlements.
Issue of stone fortifications on Iberian Peninsula from 4th to 2nd millennium BC
Brathová, Gabriela ; Dobeš, Miroslav (advisor) ; Popelka, Miroslav (referee)
Walled enclosures on the Iberian Peninsula can be classified into fortification activities that took place in the Copper Age respectively Eneolithic across Europe, and from a variety of reasons. Even in the Iberian Peninsula this kind of fortification is not unique. At the same time in the area of Iberian Meseta extend ditched enclosures (Díaz-del-Río 2004). Walled enclosures that stand in the centre of the attention of this work are situated mainly in four regions: southeast and southwest of the Peninsula, Portuguese Estremadura and north Meseta and its western periphery. Walled enclosures lie in most cases on so-called spurs or hilltops. Their position is associated with flows of large rivers such as the Guadalquivir, Guadiana, Tagus, Duoro and Mondego and with their tributaries, or they are connected directly with the sea through estuaries. In the case of dry southeast area the enclosures are associated with smaller local rivers as Andarax (Los Millares). There exist many theories in conjunction with the proximity of deposits of copper ore and its processing, for example the "colonial" theory or the theory of factories. In the context of these models stand in the centre of the attention the role of indigenous inhabitants. Key words Iberian Peninsula - Eneolithic - Walled enclosures - Metallurgy
