Languages of publication
The archaeological excavation in the village Vlková (dist. Kežmarok) started in 1998 carried out by researcher František Javorský from the Institute of Archaeology of SAS at Nitra – Department Spišská Nová Ves. Here a brick church with fence stone wall was built. It is so-called village single-nave church with east-west orientation. Its ground plan belongs to the 13th century and has several phases of construction. In addition to the base of the main altar, two side altars were also excavated. The floor remains dated to the first and second phase were partially preserved. In total, 94 graves were unearthed. Within prior surveys and excavation, shards of clay pots, coins, padlocks, keys, bronze belt hooks, spurs and plenty of iron and other artefacts were obtained. Based on archaeological finds the extinct settlement is dated back to the 12th (?) – 13th to 15th centuries.
