VEĽKOMORAVSKÉ OBJEKTY Z OPEVNENÉHO SÍDLISKA V MUŽLE-ČENKOVE
(Great Moravian Objects from the Fortified Settlement of Mužla-Čenkov)
Abstract: This study brings information about the structure, importance and development of the settlement in the locality Mužla-Čenkov from the 9th to the 10th century situated on the left bank of the Danube River. The finds fund helped to sort out the members of elite from the population, to determine their dwellings and to elucidate their relation to the construction built on the edge of their burial ground. It turned out that the fortification was built later, when the centre was threatened by external enemies. Only at that time the settlement with important economic potential changed into a Great Moravian fortified settlement.
