The Institute of Archaeology would like to announce publication of a new book: Kysela – Danielisová – Militký: Stories that made the Iron Age.

This collective monograph has been created on the occasion of a significant life anniversary of dr. Natalia Venclová – a leading Iron Age researcher with national, as well as international reputation. The editors addressed prominent European experts who focus on particular topics standing at the centre of the life-long professional interests of the Jubilee and, thus, present the readers with a selection of relevant articles and studies that not only illustrate a wide range of interests of dr. Venclová, but also, in some way, the latest overview of European research dealing with the Iron Age.

The publication focuses on Celtic mint in Bohemia during the 3rd and 2nd centuries BC. Altogether, 715 coins have been collected, catalogued and arranged according to their typology, and in the case of imported coins, they have been included in an overall catalogue of such finds from the territory of Bohemia. The book presents an entirely new view on the beginnings and earlier phase of coinage in Bohemia, taking into account the situation along the Jantar Trail, i.e. in the area between Silesia and Austrian Danube region.
