The essence of this the main result of which is to become an extensive book of the same title is a complettion and summarisation of hitherto scattered evidence concerning the earliest horizon of royal castle architecture leaning on the complex metodolgy of castellological studies and on archaeological source material, especially ressults of excavations and abundant surface surveys of the last 25 years. This will lead to securing of comaaptible inforamtion, perataining to a larger number of of sites thanwas assumed up to now and presented in the form of a concise catalogue. In its turn, this information will furnish a base for complex typological and architectural-historical evaluation including studies of genetical relations and an assessment of the system of royal castles of Přemysl-dynasty Bohemia in a wider historical and settlement history context.
