Description The studied region is being transformed substantially from the Middle Ages which grants unique possibilities of studying human impact on landscape formation. The aim is the identification of agricultural hinterland in relation to the settlement pattern and mining areas and, to reconstruct subsistence strategy of the studied region during the Middle Ages and Early Modern Period. The studied area is analyzed by the defined anthropogenic features in the landscape, using aerial archaeology and other non-destructive archaeological methods, as well as, the written sources from 13th to 16th century, where the main source is the Urbary of the Brtnice domain. These steps allow to create and test the model of land-use and subsistence strategies during the Middle Ages and Early Modern Period.
