Description The first information about the villages considered lost in the area of Moravia dates back to the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century, when in the studies of a lexicon characterthere appeared first mentions on the “empty” villages – already non-existing settlements. At the end of the nineteenth century more detailed studies concerning the villages began to be published. They were discussing this phenomenon analytically, combining data from historical sources with the ongoing parallel researches of the terrain. However, such projects were implemented only on a regional scale. Apart from previous single excavation actions being often of the amateur nature, the first methodical archaeological research on the disappeared medieval villages in Moravia took place in the 1950s.Pfaffenschlag, Mstěnice, Bystřec and Konůvky are the most widely analyzed villages with the biggest number of published studies concerning them. That researches have foundations for more developed models of studies concerning the disappeared villages, which – due to the emergence of new methods continue to evolve. In the twenty-first century, they have been extended, among others, by modern methods of measurement and presentation.
