The history of humankind may be seen as a process of domination of a territory. Nowadays, there are practically no places on Earth, which would be untouched by man. The migration waves of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries played an important role in the process of taking possession of the earth's surface. The migrants settled in many previously inhabited areas, took advantage of them, by different means marked them as theirs, built roads and railways, measured and described them, gave names to different landmarks of the occupied territory, introduced their symbols, designed frontiers, and, last but not least, organised cemeteries.
