Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a detailed study of excavation in the Forest Nursery at Pohansko. Following a critical review of the field documentation a total of 285 sunken-floored features, of which some are part of more complex structures, and 43 above-ground posthole structures were identified in the final phase of processing the excavations in the Forest Nursery. The chapter pays special attention to the question of the internal chronology of Pohansko , and especially of the settlement in the Forest Nursery. It examines the different stages of the work of an archaeologist from the formulation of a preliminary model, analysis, synthesis and validation to modelling and interpretation. In evaluating the graves we will mainly concentrate on the question of whether it is possible to reconstruct the social status of the people buried in the Forest Nursery and/or whether we can shed any light on their spiritual life.
