Languages of publication
The contribution presents results of material analysis of beads excavated in the Kalenderberg-culture´s hillfort in Smolenice-Molpír (HC 2/HD 1 or in the site chronology Smolenice I and Smolenice II ). The finds were found mostly at the acropolis (83 beads). No glass manufactures were revealed at the site. A revision of the complicated field situation has précised cultural affiliation of the beads. The article is aimed at exact evaluating of the beads material with special attention to glass. For the analysis a non-destructive method of microscopic photographs was used. As far as their material is concerned a based on reached results, the beads from Molpír can be divided into four masses: 1 - pure or transparent glass (Fig. F29: 1); 2 - imperfectly molten glass (Fig. F30: 1, 2); 3 - glaze (Fig. F31: 1, 3) - surface glassy layer on the bead ceramic core; 4 – ceramics (Fig. F32: 1). Aim of the submitted article is to present only the results of microscopic analyses of beads material, while their more voluminous evaluation was elaborated in the diploma thesis of the author of this article.
