Until the years 1945–1946, Uničov and its surrounding area were a region with a predominately ethic German population, which was why the local archaeology, born in 1928 under the auspices of the local Town Museum, was almost exclusively German. Fortunately, the complete archive with documentation of all excavations from the era of its ‘golden age’ has survived to this day and has been digitised in recent years. With the help of period photographs and materials from this unique archive, the book narrates the history of Uničov archaeology, which is closely linked to Mizzi Manethová, one of the ‘first ladies’ of Moravian archaeology. The story is enhanced by a comprehensive overview of sites from individual cadastres in the former judicial district of Uničov, some of which are introduced through their own tales of discovery.
