Topic of this project is made by complex castellological surveys, rescue excavations, documentations, evaluations and interpretations (including working out olde ones) of Czech medieval castles as well as presentation of Czech results and keeping activecontacts and relations with the Europaean castle research. Czech castles are representing badly dammaged and hardly attaced part of Czech national heritage. In wiew of the fact that the stage of elementary evidence and documentation is not satisfactory and that the losts of quality of Czech castles as historical resource are dissastrous, is the project not to be substituted and presents the only possibility of saving part of informations from rapidly disappearing sources. The project has large impact into more historical disciplines, monument care and making a national cultural feeling.
