Venus of Dolní Věstonice – Oldest Known Ceramic in the World (25,000–29,000 years old)

by March Of The Titans

The Venus of Dolní Věstonice (Czech: Věstonická Venuše), a ceramic Venus figurine, found at a Paleolithic site in the Moravian basin south of Brno, is, together with a few others from nearby locations, the oldest known ceramic in the world, predating the use of fired clay to make pottery. It is 111 millimeters (4.4 inches) tall, and 43 millimeters (1.7 inches) at its widest point, and is made of a clay body fired at a relatively low temperature. The palaeolithic settlement of Dolní Věstonice in Moravia, then Czechoslovakia, now Czech Republic has been under systematic archaeological research since 1924, initiated by Karel AbsolonOffsite Link. In addition to the Venus figurine, figures of animals - bear, lion, mammoth, horse, fox, rhino and owl - and more than 2,000 balls of burnt clay have been found at Dolní Věstonice. The figurine was discovered on July 13, 1925 in a layer of ash, broken into two pieces. Once on display at the Moravian Museum in Brno, it is now protected and only rarely accessible to the public. Last time it was exhibited in the National Museum in Prague from 2006-10-11 till 2007-09-02 as a part of the exhibition Lovci mamutů (The Mammoth Hunters). Scientists periodically examine the statuette. A tomograph scan in 2004 found a fingerprint of a child estimated at between 7 and 15 years of age, fired into the surface; the child who handled the figurine before it was fired is considered by Králík, Novotný and Oliva (2002) to be an unlikely candidate for its maker.

Face of the 26 000-year-old woman Dolní Vestonice: Portrait Head XV Pavlovian/Gravettian. 25,000-29,000 years old This ivory portrait head could depict a man or a woman but the latter is usually assumed. The head is sculpted in the round so that the oval shape of the face is realistically curved. The hair is not indicated but an incised line marks the top of the forehead framing the face. Eye brows are carefully drawn above exceptionally detailed eyes; the nose and mouth are accurately proportioned. There are no ears but these might be covered by the hair.

3D reconstruction of the Neolithic village - Bylany near Kutná Hora. Part I. - Archeology 3D

by Petr Vavrečka

A archaeology site were discovered in the 1950s. The main large-scale survey was conducted in two stages in 1955–1964 and 1966–1967 (Prof. Bohumil Soudský was the head of archaeological research). This was followed by minor exposures in 1977–1980 and 1990, 1993 and 2004 (in 2004 it was a rescue archaeological research for the planned construction of family houses in a part of the site).

A total of 7 hectares the remnants of settlement with Linear Pottery culture (approx. 5500 to 4500 BC) and Stroked Ceramics culture (approx. 4500 to 4000 BC) were uncovered within the main large-scale survey. Research in Bylny has become one of the most important exposures of the Neolithic settlement in Europe and is still the largest uncovered Neolithic settlement in the Czech Republic.

Valetudinaria was built in the Roman Empire, from around the 100s BCE. Many have been discovered among the ruins of old Roman military fortresses. Like more modern hospitals, they were made up of a number of small rooms, divided by hallways. They are thought to have been for the relief of slaves and soldiers, and have provided hospitality for the traveler.

Adam Artillery Fortress is part of Czechoslovakian fortification, which was built between 1935 and 1938, especially on the border with Germany and Hungary.

Adam's fortress consisted of eight objects: three infantry log cabins, an artillery tower, two artillery log cabins, and a mortar tower, and an entrance building.

Until September 1938, the fort was almost completed. However, the main artillery guns, which due to delays in the development and production of any of the artillery objects in the Czechoslovak border area, did not come.
