Description The article presents a comprehensive archaeological-historical interpretation of the results of interdisciplinary research conducted in the lower Dyje (Thaya) River region in the Czech Republic in 2007–2012. In the ninth century this area belonged to the core of Great Moravia, an early medieval "empire" which at its peak not only enjoyed political and cultural control over today's Moravia and Slovakia, but also significantly influenced the whole of central eastern Europe. Great Moravia collapsed suddenly at the beginning of the tenth century. The article attempts to clarify whether this collapse was as fatal as has been thought, how broad classes of the population reacted to this catastrophe, how development influenced the settlement structure and when the regeneration of society occurred.
