'Bartík J, Škrdla P, Schenk Z, 2022: CHIPPED STONE INDUSTRY FROM THE EARLY LBK HILLTOP SETTLEMENT AT SPYTIHNĚV (SOUTHEASTERN MORAVIA, CZECH REPUBLIC). Anthropologie (Brno) 60, 1: 29-59'.
 
Abstract
The new Early Neolithic settlement was discovered in the Spytihněv – "Na vrších" field (Zlín District) during a 2007 survey. Its hilltop position, which allowed the control of the surrounding landscape, including both the Lower and the Upper Morava River valleys and Napajedla Gate (a narrow passage connecting both the valleys), makes the location unique. Since its discovery, the site has been subject to repeated surface surveys, a geomagnetic survey, and two small-scale area excavations conducted in 2007 and 2016. Five sunken settlement features dated back to the Ia phase of LBK, both according to relative chronology and radiocarbon dating, have been excavated to date. The site is also unique for its numerous occurrences of chipped industry. The Spytihněv – "Na vrších" lithic artefacts collection prevailingly consists of imported raw materials and currently represents the most numerous Early Neolithic assemblage in Moravia, although the dimensions of the excavated area were spatially limited. The paper aims at a comprehensive analysis of the chipped stone industry from this settlement in the context of the Middle Danube area.
