Use of separate spectra records and interpretation possibilities of multispectral data in the context of protohistory of the middle Thaya region
Komoróczy, Balázs ; Vlach, Marek ; Zelíková, Michaela ; Sedláček, J.
The significant expansion of analytical and interpretive possibilities within remote sensing methods in archaeology over the last three decades brings especially the increasing availability of qualitatively adequate satellite multispectral data together with the development of multispectral sensors used on unmanned aerial vehicles. The results of multispectral imaging mediate an important analytical dimension for the identification and interpretation of signs of archaeological contexts in agricultural monocultures. As part of the prospecting activities of the Research Centre for Roman and Great Migration Period of the Institute of Archaeology of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Brno, current goals also include exploiting the potential of this specific segment of remote sensing (in cooperation with the Institute of Landscape Planning at Mendel University in Brno) and with use of the wide array of prospection methods to broaden the information base of archaeological components, especially the protohistoric segment of the development of the middle and lower Thaya region.
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”.
