Summary/Abstract: The book presents the synthesis of the environmental and archaeological approaches which can answer a principally historical questions related to the uprise of the high mediaeval settlement structure but also of the beginnings of the gold and silver exploitation in the project base area. The book offers structured data to the mediaeval development in the region which is still lacking direct archaelogical evidence in many areas. A low and sometimes difficult detectability of early deforestation, settlement and a whole spectre of the mining activities is compensated by archaeoenvironmental, geochemical and archaeometallurgical analytics of the alluvial sediments in this territory.
