Presented thesis deals with the settlement archaeology of the Roman Period in Bohemia and then introduces in detail also the findings of the Holubice settlement in the Prague-west district in this period. The work is mainly focused on processing and evaluation of archeological research at the sites "Kozákova zahrada" and "Na Ovčárně", which took place under the leadership of Vladimír Sakař between years 1977-1989. There was uncovered a part of the settlement from the younger part of early Roman Period and from the beginning of late Roman Period. Pottery sherds were evaluated with quantitative and qualitative analysis. The thesis also includes the analysis of unearthed objects and the outline of a shift of the land register of Holubice based on mapping of finds which were acquired through field exploration and detector survey.

Ways of Identifying Elites in the Area of the Central European Barbaricum of the Late Roman Period
Payne, David ; Beneš, Zdeněk (advisor) ; Košnar, Lubomír (referee)
The thesis pursues those aspects of the material culture found in settlements and burial sites that are connected to the manifestation of social elites in the Central European Barbaricum of the 3rd and 4th centuries AD. The author will compile relevant sources and critically evaluate various approaches regarding the options for recognising the self-presentation of elites by means of material culture identificators as well as in terms of cultural anthropology. The results will then be compared to the ways elites manifest themselves in the preceding time period. The author will also submit a proposal of possible methodical procedures that would lead to a synthetic understanding of the self-presentation and prestige goods phenomena.

Germanic Brooches of the Early Roman Period in Bohemia
Černý, Martin ; Košnar, Lubomír (advisor) ; Musil, Jiří (referee)
This dissertation evaluates Germanic fibulae of the Early Roman Period found in the area of Bohemia. The catalogue mainly consists of ca. 740 already published brooches. For the purpose of this dissertation, many of them have been newly documented as well as some so far unpublished finds which are introduced in the appendix of the dissertation. The dissertation sums up our present knowledge of particular types and variations of fibulae and makes their chronology more accurate - based on various combinations of brooches occurring in graves. Alternatively it deals with their connection to certain sex, age and social status. The most common type of brooches is by far the group of the eye-brooches (ca. 300pcs). Regarding the dating, the author managed to cast doubt upon information about some of the brooches found in the literature. The analysis has proven a long survival of some types of fibulae. Key words: brooches - fibulae - Early Roman Period - Germans - Chronology

Grolmusová, Adéla ; Frank Danielisová, Alžběta (advisor) ; Košnar, Lubomír (referee)
The thesis focuses on reviewing the excavations from Počedělice between the years 1988-1989, during which two settlement objects from the break of the La Tene period and the Early Roman period (LT D2b/ R A) were identified. Tangible and intangible finds were further analysed and evaluated, such as ground sunken homes, ceramic fragments, daubings, osteological package, a furnace and an iron object. The second part of the thesis focuses on structure of the settlements and the burials in the eastern part of Louny area. It also outlines the current state of research and the basis for the future research. The second part also presents a created catalogue of sites dated in the break of the La Tene period and the Early Roman period in the discussed region.
Iron Age and Roman Britain
Elšíková, Veronika ; Košnar, Lubomír (advisor) ; Musil, Jiří (referee)
My work deals with current konwledge of Celts in Iron Age and Roman Britain (approximately from the 6th century BC to the 5th century AD), includes infromation about chronology and periodization, Celtic society, settlement, burial practices, economic life, art and religion. The attention is devoted to today's views on Britain's share in the process of ethnogenesis of Celts and the ethnic structure of the population in pre-Roman period and the influence of the migration from the continent. The thasis further focuses primarily on the period of Roman occupation between 43 - 410 AD and the influence of Roman occupation on other aspects of Celtic society and effort to capture the development of the agricultural settlement outside the central site and explore the influences of Roman civilization in this environment. Work should, inter alia, aim to complete assessment of the extent of the continuation, modification or extinction of indigenous cultural forms.
Bohemia in the Merovingian age
Korený, Rastislav ; Košnar, Lubomír (advisor) ; Sláma, Jiří (referee) ; Varsik, Vladimír (referee)
Bohemia in the Merovingian age - end of the 5th - 6th century AD Rastislav Korený Mining Museum Příbram Abstract The following objectives have been pursued in the dissertation: 1. A new commented inventory of sites from the end of the 5th and 6th century (excluding coin finds) which should become a reliable basis for an analysis of the collected material. The last inventory of such kind was created by Bedřich Svoboda approximately sixty years ago, i.e. in the 1940-1950s, and it was not published until 1965. The need for a new revised inventory became apparent over the recent years. During the physical re-evaluation of earlier finds and related primary visual and textual documentation, which was carried out in the years 1996- 2013 (30 museum and non-museum collections, 4 separate archival collections and other information sources were revised), there was a striking discrepancy between the published data contained in the catalogue of the above mentioned monograph and reality. The excavations carried out after 1965 also, naturally, resulted in the expansion of the amount of available source material. 2. Because the material currently available from settlements was published by Ivana Pleinerová in 2007, the analysis of the collected data concentrated, in addition to the identification of chronologically more...

Glass Finds of the Roman Period in Bohemia
Kacl, Pavel ; Košnar, Lubomír (advisor) ; Venclová, Natalie (referee)
The thesis is focused on the finds of glass and faience which are to be found in the form of beads and pendants, vessels, inlays, game pieces, bracelets and a "window" in the bottom of a ceramic urn. The most common are glass and faience beads. Their occurrence increases in the Late Roman Period substantially when new ornament styles come into being as well. Because of the predominant cremation rite, the knowledge is limited for the poor condition as a large amount of glass artefacts was deformed. In view of the fact that the majority of the beads originates from the classical antiquity world, they represent a vast number of imported goods, which may have been traded in Barbaricum as well. The long necklaces reflect obviously the higher social status of buried women. Nevertheless, the same statement cannot be considered to be applicable for lower numbers of beads in graves. Even some male graves with beads are known. The elite milieus are indicated also by the glass vessels, rather rare in the Roman Period Bohemia, the inlays on brooches or rings, as well as the game pieces. The Roman glass bracelets represent a rare sort of artefacts in Barbaricum. It is also possible to encounter some residues of the Iron Age glass, mostly on the settlements. Keywords glass - faience - Roman Period - imports - Bohemia
The Roman Age and Migration Period Houses in Bohemia
Forró, Jana ; Salač, Vladimír (advisor) ; Košnar, Lubomír (referee)
The master's thesis summarizes existing knowledge of both post houses and sunken floor buildings in the Roman Age and Migration Period in Bohemia. It analyzes a collection of 131 sunken floor houses and available records about the post houses. The sunken floor building were divided in several groups according to preserved traces of their contruction which enables a comparison of the situation in Bohemia with that of neighboring areas. Using statistical methods helped to determine mutual relations between features and to identify certain regional differences. Both kinds of buildings were evaluated from the construction and functional point of view. The knowledge of post houses served as the basis for analyzing a season of an excavation of 1959 in Zalužany, dist. Příbram. Key words Bohemia - Roman Age - Migration Period - settlements - prehistoric construction
