Archaeology of the Later Medieval, Post-Medieval and Modern Deserted Villages in Western Bohemia

Since 2005, the Pilsen Seminar for medieval and post-medieval archaeology (Department of archaeology University of West Bohemia) has been focusing on the settlement and landscape transformation in a long term perspective from the later Middle Ages to the Modern period. One of the most important settlement changes is represented by an extensive settlement reduction affecting the whole cultural landscape which can be linked to three turbulent periods: the 15th century, early 17th century and post-WWII period. Whereas the study of the late medieval deserted villages has a long tradition in the Czech (Czechoslovak) archaeology, research into post-medieval sites has only recently shown a great potential for the study of the impact of the Thirty Years´ War on rural settlements. Post-WWII process of abandonment and desertion of hundreds of villages in former Sudetenland was not subject of any archaeological interest until recently. This paper will present results of several projects regarding deserted settlement in West Bohemia based on methods of non-destructive archaeological research (esp. remote sensing and topographic survey), trial excavations, environmental archaeology and documentary evidence analysis.
