Languages of publication
A multicultural locality was explored in southwest part of the cadastral area of Beckov in 2004. Finding fund composed of settlement features and material culture came from its eastern segment with an area of 0.29 ha. Its low number corresponds with the intensity of settlement expressed in number of features. In spite of this fact these findings made it possible to include this settlement generally into early Slavic period of second half of 6th cent., old Slavic period of 8th cent. and Great Moravian period from the end of 9th – 10th cent. Dating was elaborated on the basis of analysis of the shape, decoration and creation of vessels, composition of ceramic material. The rest of findings are sporadic and they are not suitable for dating. They inform in limited way about activities performed by local inhabitants. An early Slavic half-sunken dwelling and old Slavic well are important among the findings. Great Moravian grain storage pits are of unusual shape, which shortens the period of stock’s storage. Knowledge obtained from the analysis of material fund emphasizes the importance of the locality, its important place in the settlement of the neighbourhood as well as of the whole central Považie region.
