Languages of publication
The Býčí Skála Cave is situated in the central part of the Moravian Karst. The area was researched on a long-term basis by Moravian archaeologist, doctor and speleologist Heinrich Wankel; in 1872 he made an extraordinary discovery there. In the so-called Hallway he uncovered a settlement from the Hallstatt culture era containing valuable artifacts, sacrificed human and animal bodies and also a blacksmith’s workshop. The site soon became the subject matter of romantic and nationalistic interpretations both by Czech (Moravian) patriots supporting H. Wankel and also by German patriots organized under the institute of the German House in Brno.
