The project was aimed at evaluating of all archaeological researches that have been materialised in the acropolis of Vyšehrad till now and their classification into the historical development of the territory and early Czech state. The project arose as a part of the long-term plan to process gradually and publish extensive but till now not evaluated archaeological inheritance received from Vyšehrad by generations of researchers since 20th years of the 20th century up to the present. It has been succeeded to process and publish in monograph researches on three different territories of Vyšehrad, in the sequence the fourth and historically most important territory – acropolis – is the subject of the submitted project. This process will result in a monograph about Vyšehrad acropolis representing an extensive archaeological source basis, its complex evaluation according to modern requirements and classification into historical frame and finally, inclusion into the study of medieval royal settlements.
