The Těšetice-Kyjovice archaeological site
This important prehistoric site made its mark in the history of research into the European Neolithic with the discovery of the circular socio-cultic enclosure – the so-called roundel. Between 1968 and 1978 it was the first comprehensively examined feature of this kind in Central Europe. In 1964 the former department of prehistory of Brno University started excavations at the “Sutny” location supervised by Vladimír Podborský, who is the author of several monographs on the site. The excavation work, which is connected with the regular practical education of the students, is carried out annually by the Institute of Archaeology and Museology at the Faculty of Arts of Masaryk University in Brno.
