The cognizance of historical and cultural sources, or national heritage of the Czech Lands is a condition for the awareness of national identity. The relevant sources should be assembled, processed and presented for further research. This represents a complex research work in the field of humanities, aided by modern systems of digital documentation and presentation. Particular goals within the project are the creation of databases, historic encyclopaedias, bibliography, catalogues of manuscripts, iconographical evidence, digital archives of reports and other data, editions and lexicographical dictionaries. Selected evidence will be presented on the web. The project concerns archaeology, history, linguistics, ethnology, law, and economy. Wide use of electronic media is a condition for the work.
