Hrad jako technický problém
The collection comprises contributions delivered at the colloquium “The Castle as a Technical Issue. Technologies and Forms in the Construction of Mediaeval Fortified Settlements”, held at the end of 2007 at the Moravian Museum, Brno, with the participation of archaeologists, architects, anthropologists, and heritage experts. Besides covering the building and historical development of castles, the contributions also concentrate on details of everyday life in mediaeval castles, people’s diets, and armour. Much of the attention is dedicated to the context of Skály (Štarkov) Castle near Jimramov. Further contributions involve castles at Cimburk, near Městečko Trnávka and Újezd u Kunštátu, the Silesian-Ostrava Castle, and the Nosislav stronghold.
