Počátky středověké kolonizace české části Českomoravské vrchoviny
Title in English: The Beginnings of Mediaeval Colonization of the Bohemian Section of the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands
The article discusses the evidence of settlement on the Bohemian side of the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands before the discovery of polymetallic ores in the region at the end of the 1230s. The first part of the article presents a catalogue of prehistoric agricultural finds from Pelhřimov and Jihlava districts. The most frequent among them are Neolithic and Eneolithic artefacts, followed by finds from late prehistory. The interpretation of these prehistoric artefacts is somewhat ambiguous; seasonal activities are presumed. A change in the use of the observed area probably did not occur until the 12th century when this peripheral region of the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands started to be systematically colonized. The subject is conveyed through several theme circles: Forest, Routes, Gold and Colonization.
