A complex survey of High medieval blacksmithery in this country, on the basis of the find of a smithy and 18 000 iron articles at Sezimovo Ústí. The first part of the work concerns the form and operation of the medieval forge, addressing questions of the technological, iconographical and archaeologiacal sources available for the appearance and equipment of a medieval smithy. The second part deals with terminology, typology and chronology of mediaval ironmongery on the basis of the material from Sezimovo Ústí, including analogies from elsewhere in Europe. The conclusion is devoted to the evaluation of the finds in the framework of the craftsmens quarter in Sezimovo Ústí, and an assessment of their contribution to the reconstruction of life in this medieval settlement.
