Description This publication is divided into several parts, which are essential for a comprehensive understanding of the topics of the archaeological perspective of the past. Natural conditions, such as the quality of soil or the climate, were decisive for all agriculture-dependent populations, therefore, our book addresses them in the beginning. The first bits of knowledge about the ancient inhabitants of Mikulovice began to emerge toward the end of the 19th century. Thus, we also had to include chapters from the history of archaeology of Mikulovice and its immediate surroundings - from the first findings, through the founding of the Museum Society, to the present-day archaeology, which consists mainly of rescue surveys. The largest part of attention in the book is devoted to the settlement of Mikulovice in those periods, for which no written records still existed. Due to the absence of findings from the earliest prehistorical periods - Paleolithic and Mesolithic - the book starts at the beginning of the agricultural period - Neolithic. The story unfolds more or less continually up to the threshold of history in the later Roman Period, where the prehistorical and early historical account of Mikulovice completes.
