The publication focuses on hoards of the Bronze Age metal objects found between 1990 and 2013 on the territory of Bohemia. For that reason they are not included in the previous syntheses of Czech hoards processed by V. Moucha and O. Kytlicová from the end of the 20th century. The only hoards are presented,  which are stored in museums or other professional institutions. Hoards in illegal collections are not covered by the publication.

Heart of the publication is a detailed catalogue describing all artefacts collected on freshly discovered 110 hoards. Other chapters are theoretical, they deal with the history of research on the Bronze Age hoards in Bohemia, evaluate the present state of the preserved source base and the typological composition of hoards. There are also chapters dealing with the analysis of the elemental composition of the collected artefacts and the organic materials that were discovered in the hoards. The final overall summary resolves cultural-chronological issues, settlement topographic analysis of disposition of hoards or the interpretation potential of newly discovered hoards. The second part of the monograph brings drawings of all collected artefacts and other related pictorial documentation.
