|Abstrakt EN:||Methods of non-destructive archaeological research have had a long tradition in the Czech Republic. However, their systematic development did not occur until the 90s of the 20th century. Department of Archaeology of the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen represents one of few archaeological centers in Bohemia where methods of non-destructive archaeology are being developed systematically and on a long-term basis. The non-destructive archaeology forms an inseparable part of wider theoretical questions which stem in the landscape, settlement and spatial archaeology. Archaeological research of the forested areas (barrow burial grounds, deserted medieval villages, remains of prehistoric and medieval mining) and upland sites (parts of uphill settlements, prehistoric fortifications, hillforts and medieval castles and minor seats of nobility) belong to the main research subjects. The non-destructive methods provide us with various possibilities of preservation of the unique but unfortunately endangered cultural heritage and preventive preservation of individual archaeological monuments. This paper is focused on application of some methods and approaches of the non-destructive archaeology which were conducted in the last decade during research of chosen prehistoric and medieval settlement and burial areas and their components in the region of South Bohemia.|
