STREDOVEKÉ ZAHĹBENÉ KUPOLOVÉ PECE Z PONITRIA
(Medieval Recessed Cupola Ovens from the Nitra Region)
Abstract: The contribution seeks to present the newest finds of recessed medieval cupola ovens in Nitra region. The finds were excavated by the Department of Archaeology at the Constantine the Philosopher University in Nitra. The paper provides a detailed analysis of a system of three connected recessed cupola ovens from Nitra, Dolné Krškany and a recessed single-chamber cupola oven with entry steps from Svätoplukovo. The material from this locality dates back to the second half of the 11th until the beginning of the 13th century. In Slovakia, their concentration is significant predominantly in the Nitra region; therefore, the paper attempts to evaluate these ovens in the context of analogous finds known from other medieval settlements in the region. In conclusion, the contribution also interprets their possible function and usage.
