This publication summarizes the vast investigation of the hill top of the early Celtic hillfort of Závist (Central Bohemia) in the years 1963-1989. Four main building phases have been reconstructed, the chronology established and the area interpreted as sacred place. The analysis points to the site’s outstanding position in Bohemia and proves its contacts to neighbouring as well as distant regions – including the Mediterranean. To the textual part a catalogue of the finds and 5 appendices with the results of scientific analyses (human and animal bones, plant remains, metallography) are added. An extensive summary and a complete translation of the concluding part close the book. The publication has been supported by the Grant Agency of the Czech Academy of Sciences.
