Predavanje PRAGUE CASTLE AND ITS ARCHAEOLOGICAL RESEARCH - A TESTIMONY ABOUT THE BEGINNINGS OF THE CZECH STATE u sklopu kulturnog programa FOUR SEASONS OF CZECH CULTURE.

   Arheološka istraživanja Praškog dvorca započela su kao znanstveni projekt 1925. godine. Istraživanja su prikupila mnoga saznanja o počecima ovog državnog središta u 9. i 10. stoljeću te o životu običnih ljudi i najstarijih poznatih pripadnika vladajuće dinastije Přemyslovaca. Nalazi iz nekropola pokazuju veze s velikim dijelom Europe, a umjetnost zlatara osvjetljava život tog doba. Dobiveni su potpuno novi podaci o stanovnicima Praškog dvorca u Srednjem vijeku zahvaljujući suvremenim metodama prirodnih znanosti (izotopi podrijetla, izotopi prehrane, DNA analize).

Lecture Prague Castle and its archaeological research. A testimony about the beginnings of the Czech state within the cultural program FOUR SEASONS of CZECH CULTURE.

   The archaeological research of Prague Castle started as a scientific project in 1925. It has gathered a great deal of knowledge about the beginnings of this state centre in the 9th and 10th centuries, about the life of the common people, the ducal retinue and the oldest known members of the ruling Premyslid dynasty. The finds from the burial grounds showing the connections with a large part of Europe and the art of contemporary jewellers illuminate the life in that time. Completely new data about the inhabitants of Prague Castle during Middle Ages were received by modern methods of natural sciences (isotopes of origin, diet isotopes, DNA).
