|Abstrakt EN:||This poster presents a brief review of the use of analogies in an interpretation of artefact purpose in prehistoric archaeology. This case study is based on Czech archaeological literature since the 19th century. The basic aspects of the analogies investigated in this study are: the original source of the analogy (e.g. ethnographic, historical record), the way it was used for interpretation, its relation to archaeological paradigms, the frequency with which it has been applied and its lifespan.|
