Lead objects from the Slavic hill-fort Bojná-Valy
Languages of publication
The contribution deals with a set of thirteen lead objects found during the 2007 and 2008 excavation seasons on the early medieval hill-fort Valy situated in the administrative area of Bojná (district Topoľčany). The processed objects represent a heterogeneous set in terms of form and their exact functional classification is impossible. Dating of objects is based on the general chronological classification of the hill-fort to the 9th century. Besides these finds there were several remains of modern finds, mostly lead bullets from firearms. In addition to description and analysis of finds the article focuses on lead processing technology in prehistoric times, and special emphasis is laid on the Early Middle Ages. Since the subject of lead utilization throughout the history of Slovakia is little researched, several unpublished lead objects from the different periods have been also included.
