Geophysical Survey in Vinicity of the Church Stětí sv. Jana Křtitele in Dolní Chabry
Buneš, Josef ; Dohnal, Jiří (advisor) ; Kněz, Jaroslav (referee)
v Abstract The diploma thesis "Geophysical survey of the surroundings of the Church of the Beheading of St. John the Baptist in Dolní Chabry" describes the realized geophysical measurements at an important archaeological locality and interprets its results. The locality is approached from the historical, geographical and geological point of view. There are described physical properties of rocks, basic principles of geophysical methods used and methodology of field work and data processing. Finally, the measurement results are interpreted. The following methods were used for the research: symmetric resistivity profiling, dipole electromagnetic profiling, electrical resistivity tomography and seismic rafraction. Several anomalies corresponding to already known objects were identified and localized in the locality, another part of captured anomalies corresponds to previously unknown buried archaeological objects. Keywords: archeology, geophysics, archeogeophysics, Dolní Chabry, Church of the Beheading of St. John the Baptist
Mobile Application for Treasure Hunters
Skaličan, Robin ; Škarvada, Libor (referee) ; Hynek, Jiří (advisor)
The goal of this bachelor's thesis was the design and implementation of a mobile application for devices with the Android operating system. The application intends to simplify the work of findings documentation for searchers with a metal detector. The goal is also to provide an easier way for further communication with archaeologists about the findings. A request was created to extend the thesis assignment by a web application on meetings with archaeologists. The web application displays the recorded data from the mobile application and simplifies any further communication with the data author. This data is stored in the Firebase Realtime Database. The mobile application implements a map view using the Leaflet library and functions based on user requirements. Java and JavaScript programming languages were used for most of the implementation. The result of my work is composed of two applications working with the shared database.

Silver separation technique for isotopic measurement in archaeological samples
Venhauerová, Petra ; Trubač, Jakub (advisor) ; Vaněk, Aleš (referee)
Silver isotopes nowadays present a very fast evolving system. One of the field in which this isotopic system is used is archaeology where the silver isotopes are used as a tracer of monetary and power changes between geographical regions. Through statistical analysis of measured data and their comparison with so far published values can be estimated probability of common source area of metal used for coinage. On Celtic coin samples (180-70 BC) provided by the Institute of Archaeology of the CAS, Prague (A. Danielisová) the isotopic composition of silver was measured. Silver was separated from the matrix elements by a method which uses ascorbic acid to precipitate silver. However, the weights of samples commonly used for this method are generally distinctly higher than the amounts of the obtained fragments of Celtic coins. Regarding the differences in the method and low weights of fragments, tests with variable concentrations of ascorbic acid and amounts of silver were performed. The amounts of silver used for this method are commonly ~30x-70x higher. The results showed that this method effectively separates silver from matrix elements and is sufficient for higher concentrations of silver; with lower ones the yields are reduced. The separated silver was measured using MC-ICP-MS. The adjusted...
Cultural landscape
Plachký, Tomáš ; Kotzmannová,, Alena (referee) ; Rathouský, Luděk (advisor)
The thesis deals with current cultural landscape and reflection of individual social topics in Europe. The installation consists of three objects that solve the individual theme, using material experiments. Their reactions shift these topics further to certain associations.
Fytolitová analýza materiálu ze záchranného archeologického výzkumu v Radčicích, okr. Strakonice.
BUDILOVÁ, Kristýna
This thesis deals with a phytolith analysis of dark soil and artefact residues from neolithic exploatation pits at Radčice archeological site in south Bohemia. Thesis contains a literary research part about phytoliths and their use in archaeology, stone tool residue analyses, neolithic environment, farming and archaeobotany of central Europe. Several samples from sediment and chipped industry (blades) were processed and analyzed by polarizing microscope. Results are discussed in attempt to answer questions about genesis of the infill as well as about usage of stone tools and cereal processing activities on site.
The historical and archaeological importance of travel accounts made by Russian pilgrims to the Near East from the 12th to 19th centuries.
Ježek, Václav ; Tumis, Stanislav (advisor) ; Boček, Pavel (referee) ; Nykl, Hanuš (referee)
This work deals with a theme, which is increasingly becoming popular amongst scholars. It is a theme dealing with Russian pilgrims and travellers, who visited the areas of the Middle East, especially those places, such as Constantinople, the Holy Land, Mt. Athos and others. Under the designation Russian pilgrims we do not mean individuals belonging to a specific ethnic group, but individuals who were related to Russia understood as a political formation and state. The contacts between the south and Russia, have important consequences for the development of Russia itself, its culture, identity and history. This is also the case for the Middle East, where the contacts with Russia determined to a large extent the development and character of this area. The Russian contacts with the south should be primarily viewed in terms of the Byzantine-Russian context. These were based on cultural influences and on a shared faith and identity. The cultural and religious contacts were enabled by travelling individuals, who travelled without and with a specific goal. In the context of these journeys the prime motivation was a religious one, when a pilgrimage to such areas as Constantinople, Mt. Athos, the Holy Land, helped to build a religious identity in Russia, since before the fall of Constantinople, religion...
Contacts and Archaeology - the Example of Avar Khaganate and Western Slavs
Michaličová Nováková, Jana ; Profantová, Naděžda (advisor) ; Štefan, Ivo (referee)
The presented work focuses on the comparison of the basic characteristics of cultures inhabitating the area of today's Czech republic and the area of the historical Avar Khaganate in the time period betweeen half of the 6th century to the beginning of 9th century. The groundwork for this comparison is the study of 10 sites - 5 settlements and 5 cemeteries. Two cemeteries and two settlements are located in the centre of Czech republic, two and two others are located in the centre of khaganate, the remaining two are located in the border area between them. These sites show us parallels between both preseneted cultures. We can observe the similarities in funerary customs and in patterns of houses and settlements as well. Movable artifacts, some of which we may describe as luxurious ones, also undeniably reflect contacts between the Khaganate and areas of today's Czech republic. Key words Slavs, Avars, Contacts, Ethnicity, Archaeology, Early Middle Ages
Geophysical methods for localization and exploration of deserted medieval villages
Vošvrdová, Eliška ; Dohnal, Jiří (advisor) ; Kněz, Jaroslav (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with geophysical methods used for localization and exploration of deserted medieval villages. It's comprised of two closely related parts: theoretical and practical. First of which, the thesis reviews the current knowledge about deserted medieval villages, how to locate them and describes practical application of selected geophysical methods such as magnetometry, geoelectrical resistivity survey (symmetric resistivity profiling, electrical resistivity tomography) and electromagnetic (ground penetrating radar, dipole electromagnetic profiling). In addition to the explanation of basic principles and practical use of the methods in archaeological prospection, this part of the thesis presents particular examples of structures and objects that are being sought around the areas of deserted medieval villages. The second part is experimental and its main aim is to describe geophysical research of a selected area called Štítary u Městce Králové. The primary purpose of research was to localize relicts of deserted medieval village. This part of the thesis examines the preparation proces, implementation of the terrain measurment, the data processing and, most importantly, the interpretation of the final results. Key words: archaeology, deserted medieval villages, geophysical methods,...
Rakovnik 1620 Battlefield (Contribution to the Metal-Detector Prospecting of the Early Modern Battlefields)
Šámal, Zdeněk ; Matoušek, Václav (advisor) ; Vařeka, Pavel (referee)
In 2010 the Museum of T. G. M Rakovník began an archaeological survey on a large scaled area, where from 27th of October till the 5th of November 1620, military clashes between the Estates army and the allied forces of the Roman Emperor with the Catholic League took place, just before the battle on Bílá hora. The research, originally associated with the preparation of regional exhibition, grew over the years into a unique project in the field of post-Medieval military activities archaeology. It has two major pillars. First was the field survey, which also covers air prospection, which identifies remains and also offers a geodetic survey of the debris field fortifications, which the army had built. The second is the use of detector prospecting in connection with the GPS data and its subsequent projection into maps. In the past twenty years, metal detectors became a sensitive problem not only in the Czech archaeology sphere. But they are also a useful and efective tool. Experience from abroad shows that an archaeological research of battlefields can't be done without detector prospecting. So far the detector research of the Rakovník battlefield has lasted four seasons (2010-2014) and its main focus has been on finding and localising the lead bullets for firearms used in The Thirty Year War. It was...
