|Abstrakt EN:||This poster deals with the studies of artefact purpose in Czech archaeology. Three main dimensions of purpose are considered - practical function, social meaning and symbolic significance as well as aspects of expression/style. Various definitions of purpose that have appeared in Czech archaeological literature since the 19th century are compared with this concept. The introduction of important original or borrowed ideas is traced, as well as the relation of these to archaeological paradigms, the frequency with which they have been applied and their lifespan.|
