EARLY CAROLINGIAN SPUR FROM SMOLENICE, FOUND IN 1934
Languages of publication
The paper presents the analysis of a loop spur found during A. Loubal’s research in 1934 on Smolenice-Molpír hillfort. The item is known in the literature for a long time. However, the method of its publication prevented proper scientific evaluation of the artefact. The schematic drawing documentation prompted archaeologists to consider the spur an imitation. A more detailed analysis of the find shows that it is an uncommon item in Western Slovakia, namely an Early Carolingian original dated back to the turn of the 8th and 9th century or the beginning of the 9th century.
