|Abstrakt EN:||Analyses and an evaluation of data obtained during a surface survey in the Drahany Highlands provided a view of the character of the Middle Age settlement. This provided us with the basis for the reconstruction of past landscapes whereas the extent of ploughlands have been delimitated with the help of archaeological prediction. On this basis, (and also thanks to comparison with the current settlement patterns) it is possible to observe land use and the impact of human activities on the landscape. It is possible to reveal the main principles which could have determined the choice of the location for the settlement areas (especially the placing of residential areas and their surrounding fields). We could identify the factors which could expressively influence the process of abandoning the villages.|
