Description In contrast, the presumption that mining settlements typically consisted of residential sunken features was not confirmed by material evidence. The latest research in the Staré Hory settlement, Jihlava brought detail information about the construction of sunken features. In general terms, the main reason for the differences in buildings situated in mining environments is not their provisional character. On the other hand, the authors believe there was little need for individual cool storage spaces. As illustrated by a similar situation in villages, cellars might have been adopted from contemporary towns regardless of necessity, as part of the colonization type of house. There were also large communal cellars, as demonstrated by an example from Kremsiger in the Krušné hory mountains.
