Geophysical survey and restored systematic excavation of acropolis in Smolenice-Molpír
Languages of publication
Restored archaeological excavation on Molpír hill-fort was undertaken in July 2008. Its main purpose was to identify the stratigraphy on the site in more detail and define periods of settlement in those places of the acropolis where excavation had not been carried out. Area 1/2008 was determined by geophysical survey. The stratigraphic situation was documented in the examined trenches, which brought new knowledge of the cultural layering. The hill-fort was populated in several prehistoric and early historic periods. The most intensive was settlement in the Early Iron Age (Hallstatt period). The excavation’s most significant result is uncovering of a part of stone foundations of a house and its inner space (destruction layer and hearth floor) from Hallstatt period (HC), whose dimensions correspond to the anomaly recorded already in the geophysical survey.
