Late Hallstatt iron metalurgy; the example the the iron workshop at Tuchoměřice
Lett, Jaroslav ; Frank Danielisová, Alžběta (advisor) ; Salač, Vladimír (referee)
This work is about metallurgy and blacksmithing in the period of late Hallstatt and early La Tène in Central Europe. The first part presents all known evidence of metallurgical and blacksmithing in the period under review. Examples are then presented by the most important Central European localities, where this activity has been clearly proved. In work is presented a set of blacksmith tools dated to the late Hallstatt from the hall of the Býčí skála cave, mining and smelting of iron ore from the same period in Čečejovice (SK), including a nearby smithy in the hall of the Fajka cave in Jasov (SK). This is followed by a small housing estate in Čakov with proven smelting of iron ores in the late Hallstatt based on the occurrence of metallurgical slag in the settlement waste layer without younger intrusions. Metallurgical activity on a larger scale with a period of greatest activity in the early La Tène and domed furnaces are presented on the example of the Neuenbürg (DE) site. Another presented locality is a settlement with proven metallurgical and blacksmithing activity with the peak of activity in the late Hallstatt with pit furnaces and pit charcoal kilns in Waschenberg (AT). This list is completed by a brief overview of findings related to metal processing in the Tuchoměřice area, as the research...
The origins of Bohemian Oppida: The Role of the Mediterranean and the Urbanisation processes in the European Iron Age
Kysela, Jan ; Salač, Vladimír (advisor) ; Bouzek, Jan (referee) ; Vitali, Daniele (referee)
The presented study analyses on the example of Bohemia the question in what extent the creation of oppida (and more broadly the cultural transformation of the Transalpine world in the recent La Tène period) were influenced by Mediterranean impulses and to what extent they may be on the other hand considered as a local phenomenon. The historical and chronological background are studied in detail, the question itself is approached by an analysis of the corpus of Mediterranean imports in central Europe intended to evaluate the role of Bohemia (within the central European context) in the contacts with the Mediterranean. In the concluding chapter the oppida and their settlement systems are confronted with the Mediterranean towns. The contacts with the Mediterranean turn out to have been constant and significant for the Transalpine word, the oppida, however, seem to be a largely local phenomenon. Powered by TCPDF (
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
Burial-ground of Bylany Culture from Lovosice
Půlpán, Marek ; Salač, Vladimír (advisor) ; Koutecký, Drahomír (referee)
The work is concerned with the archaeological finds from Lovosice, Ustecky kraj, CR obtained in 2002. The major part consists of description and drawing documentation of 15 well-equipped from the Early Iron Age. Movable artifacts are analyzed typologically and chronologically. The funeral rite is evaluated in the frame of spatially-functional relations between human relicts and burnt offerings. Immovable finds are analyzed with respect to the parameters of holes, construction and things. In the same way the graves are categorized into the finding groups. The funeral site is evaluated with regard to the form, structure, total range and chronological trend. The main goal consists in a definition of evolutionary horizons of the funeral site and their comparison between Czech and Central European chronological systems. These horizons, in the future, can make one of the main pillars for evaluating grave and settlement finds of Hallstatt age in NW and C Bohemia. The area of Lovosice necropolis is interpreted as a site of central relevancy and the dead as elite with significant influence over the cultural and economic development of the region. Nowadays, Lovosice represents one of the richest, most widely researched and therefore most important funeral site of Ha C1 - Ha D1 in Bohemia. Keywords Hallstatt...

Economy in the La-T`ene Period
Rozsypal, Jan ; Salač, Vladimír (advisor) ; Frank Danielisová, Alžběta (referee)
The object of this thesis is a component of the extensive issue of the economy of La-Tène period, namely the problem regarding the nourishment of oppida. In a domestic research, this issue tends to be a part of most economic models created for the La-Tène period. Two main dissimilar approaches are being used, and researchers achieve distinctively heterogenous results. This distinct difference is one of the main subjects of the thesis. The goal of this thesis is not to create a new economical model or to solve the questions concerning the nourishment of oppida. The goal is a comparison and analysis of the approaches, that were presented in current economic models. I will test the approaches from the aspect of an exchange relations, including the usege of new findings about exchange, that were made in the fields of other humanities. Keywords La-Tène, economy, oppidum, exchange, multidisciplinary
Gold in late iron age in Bohemia
Smola, Adam ; Salač, Vladimír (advisor) ; Frank Danielisová, Alžběta (referee)
This bachelor's thesis deals with the gold in the late Iron Age. The aim is a comprehensive description and summarization of current natural scientific and archaeological knowledge of mining, processing and use of the gold in the late Iron Age, with emphasis on the Czech territory. The work consists of three parts. The first part focuses on the geology of gold. The second part is devoted to mining archeology, and the third relates to gold in the context of the late Iron Age in Bohemia. In conclusion, there are proposed areas that need attention if we look for the direct evidence of precious metal mining in the late Iron Age. An important part of this work is to inform the Czech professionals with the not well kown but more unique achievements of French archeology in proving mining gold in a similar environment and cultural terms and time frame. The work should serve as a basis for the further research a bring the theory into practice. KEY WORDS: late Iron Age, gold mining, settlement, archeology of gold mining
The Relationships between Bohemia and Gaul from 4th to 1st century. BC.
Pierrevelcin, Gilles ; Salač, Vladimír (advisor) ; Bernard, Jan (referee) ; Guillaumet, Jean-Paul (referee)
This work will introduce the relationships between Bohemia and Gaul from 4th to 1st century BC, mainly based on previous documentation, originating from research history and monographic issues, concerning particular types of artefacts. A range of 61 of them, constituting 230 items, has so been defined, forming as many "contacts features" between both areas. These features allow underlining the dynamic in theses contacts, even on chronological and spatial ground. The function of some sites (Stradonice, Manching) or areas (Switzerland, Rhine-Moselle) is so emphasized. The performing of quality and quantity data is completed by researches concerning the form of contacts that can be considered (exchanges, migration, aso.). The second stage of the analysis process is bringing out some procedure difficulties, proving that archaeological data by themselves are necessary but not sufficient to answer these questions.
Tuchlovice mikroregion in the latène and Roman period
Bursák, Daniel ; Salač, Vladimír (advisor) ; Košnar, Lubomír (referee)
This submitted thesis summarizes archaeological data about Iron Age and roman period settlement activity in the area of Tuchlovický potok downstream. Main focus is given to the elaboration of archaeological excavations, which were carried out in the years 1967 and 1968 by A. Knor and J. Zeman. The excavations followed up a large drain trench between Tuchlovice and Srby (district Kladno, Central Bohemia), where K. Motyková detected in the year 1966 the rests of roman period settlement with organic finds. Thirteen probes unearthed relatively widely spread rests of settlement, which was probably buried by a flood. The analysis of pottery sherds allows dating of the excavated settlement mainly to the century AD. Sampled wooden finds were submitted to dendrochronological surveys, but the recorded tree ring curve didn't match any so far known. Most important finds are a part of wooden fence and a piece from composite wooden jar. Other wooden artifacts and finds do not allow any functional interpretation. The research carried pointed to a great potential of this site for answering a wide spectrum of questions about prehistorical settlement sites and their relation to environment. The excavations also brought some rarely found organic finds like pollen, rests of plants and some other.
The Cispadane Boi and the problem of the origin of the oppida in the Central Europe
Kysela, Jan ; Bouzek, Jan (referee) ; Salač, Vladimír (advisor)
This thesis is the question of origin zaalpských2 late laténských oppida or one more argument, developed in response to this question. This theory, situated oppida central source of inspiration in northern Italy in populated Celtic Fighting strain found among Czech researchers a response: become an essential building block model that was developed for the creation oppida in Bohemia and who can despite some objections that have been vysloveny3 against him with some exaggeration, the official Czech position on the issue of Archaeology. I do not share the thought template on the basis of this theory was developed, and yet (and thus more likely) I find it interesting look again free from the interpetaačního key to verify its individual components and arguments, ask how much evidence they are on their own, how much of each other package and how it is supporting as a whole.
