The project seeks to identify the principal features of the settlement network of prehistoric Bohemia: its links with the natural environment, demographic Characteristics, its internal structure, its continuity over time and the roots of changes affectinit, the practical and the ´non-functional´ aspects of spatial arrangement of prehistoric sites, as well as the current state of archaeological resources as resulting from specific formation processes and previous research strategies. The participants in the project aspire to achieve significant advances in this field using aerial photography and other non-destructive archaeological techniques (surface survey, geophysics), the creation of database systems and the introductions of computers analysis of spatial data (GIS, geographical information systems). The results of the project will also contribute to the development of methods of archaeological site predictions, important from the point of view of archaeological heritage management.
