Languages of publication
The contribution presents new Early Medieval finds from hill fort Prosiek-Hrádok (district of Liptovský Mikuláš) on the ancient trail connecting the regions Liptov and Orava and leading further to north. This strategical area was used also in the Late Bronze Age as well as at the end of Middle La Tène (Púchov culture). In 2007 inside the fortification uncovered hoard contained besides other artefacts parts of harness (spurs, stirrup) and armament (winged lance). According to this hoard as well as the types of earrings found in Prosiek and Liptovská Mara came to the colonisation of Liptov not before the (second) half of 9th cent. However, the attention is also paid to new finds from the hill fort Ostrá skala near Vyšný Kubín in Lower Orava valley well-known from the excavation in 70–80-ties. Several single early medieval artefacts and a scrap hoard were discovered by detector hunting in 1987. The found plain nomadic arrow heads from both sites belong to the end of 9th and to the 10th cent. The Early Medieval settlement of both North Slovak regions despite some new finds and two hoards of iron tools stay limited on a few sites.
