An authorised organisation (operating in Moravia and Silesia) that has a licence to conduct archaeological research has the following obligations (according to S. 21(4) of Act No. 20/1987 Coll., on State Monument Care, the Licence to Carry Out Archaeological Research by the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic and the Agreement with the Czech Academy of Sciences):
- to announce the start of archaeological fieldwork to ARÚB at least 10 days prior to commencement, preferably via the Archaeological Map of the Czech Republic (AMCR) information system
- to submit a report of the archaeological fieldwork results, preferably via the Archaeological Map of the Czech Republic (AMCR) information system, after it is ended, at least once per calendar year
- to submit an excavation report, preferably via the AMCR (see the Rules for filing an excavation report on archaeological fieldwork) within three years from the end of the archaeological fieldwork
Note: If archaeological fieldwork is conducted in a territory that was declared a cultural monument, a national cultural monument, a conservation area or a conservation zone, the above-mentioned documents must also be sent to the National Heritage Institute, to its central workplace in Brno. If the fieldwork is registered in AMCR, the information is automatically sent to the National Heritage Institute by the system.
As of 1 June 2017, the Archaeological Map of the Czech Republic (AMCR) took over the system for the submission of the archaeological fieldwork documentation. All data and documents were transferred from the DAEAV database.
For complete instructions, manuals and the latest news, see the AMCR website.
