|Popis||Castle landscapes represent a myriad of social, economic, architectural and natural relations. The inner economics and economy of any castle are always very hard to piece back together to create a whole picture of a life long gone. Especially from an archaeological perspective. Long-term excavation can reveal many important details, which may have not been previously thought of. Rokštejn Castle (Czech Republic, Jihlava district) has been excavated for over 40 years. Archaeological field prospection of the Castle’s hinterland made it possible to compare the Castle and its hinterland from the economical view. These economic ties are based on archaeological data and written sources, as well as its ties to the surrounding landscape. The economic situation of the hinterland brings new details, when compared with Castle’s dispositional evolution and changes during individual building phases from the late 13th century to 1467. Thanks to written sources, archaeological and historical research, interdisciplinary approach (e.g. archaeobotany, petroarchaeology), a complex view of the Castle’s landscape has emerged.|
