'Lička M, 2019: HOUSES FROM MŠENO (CENTRAL BOHEMIA) IN THE CONTEXT OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE STROKED POTTERY CULTURE. Anthropologie (Brno) 57, 3: 271-286'.
 
Abstract
In the settlement of Mšeno (Central Bohemia), ground plans from the Stroked Pottery Culture (SPC) were discovered. They are made up of individual postholes or foundation trenches. There was one ground plan of nearly rectangular shape, with a slight narrowing of the northern part. In other cases, the ground plans have a slight to pronounced trapezoidal shape and their longitudinal walls are predominantly convex, very occasionally straight. They consist of one or two rows of construction elements. There is great variety in the ground plans; no two are the same. Some houses show great similarity with houses from Bohemia and Moravia, but even more so with houses from the area of Dresden and Leipzig. Any relationship to the cultural environment of today’s Bavaria is only to a lesser extent. The construction of houses in the settlement of Mšeno is rare. A total of six ground plans create three tight, apparently discontinuous lines and nearby there are a pair of ground plans. Only these are arranged in one line. The question, by the way, of the contemporaneity or not of the houses in separate pairs, as well as the issues of the gradual development of a family, as is evidenced archaeologically with the construction of other homes is also discussed.
