The book is a collective monograph published in connection with two major anniversaries of the Institute of Archaeology of the Czech Academy of Sciences, Brno, and Moravian archaeology in general: the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the independent Institute of Archaeology of the Academy of Sciences in Brno and the 100th anniversary of the appointment of I. L. Červinka as state conservator for Moravia and Silesia at the State Institute of Archaeology. The narrative reveals many remarkable stories from the history of the institute regarding its research, organisational and popularisation activities. The publication provides a reflection of the institute in the context of political and social changes as well as the development of archaeology as a scientific discipline. It presents a selection of the most important sites and discoveries of the past 80 years. The book with rich illustrations is intended both for the scientific community and the general public.
