Description This article discusses the archaeological contexts and finds that are dated to the second half of the 13th century or to the first half of the 14th century, and are associated with the earliest history of the town of Počátky. In this period the town had an elongated, spindle-shaped centre which was, in the early 16th century at the latest, divided by a stone wall into a small square around the Church of St. John the Baptist and an unprotected southern suburb. Both these areas were gradually archeologically researched in 2010–2016. The main part of the article brings an assessment of a pottery series from a sunken cellar in Palackého náměstí Square. In addition, the paper also presents small ceramic series from excavations in Mariánské náměstí Square, from a private collection of Mr. Matoušek and from the collections of the Počátky museum.
