This graphically attractive publication is a bilingual Czech-English catalogue of the exhibition Great Moravian Mikulčice Virtually, which took place between 25th August and 31st October 2022 at the Mikulčice-Trapíkov research base (with the support of the NAKI II programme of the Ministry of Culture and the Czech Academy of Sciences). The leitmotif of the exhibition and the publication is the presentation of scientifically accurate 3D models of archaeological features, structures and artefacts (chiefly jewellery and garment components) discovered at the early medieval site of Mikulčice-Valy and processed by means of the computer modelling of photogrammetric documentation. The publication consists of three parts. Part one contains three essays about virtual archaeology and the settlement of Mikulčice-Valy. Part two consists of seven richly illustrated catalogue chapters, which expand on the exhibition texts. There are images of the exhibited 3D models and there are also QR codes with links to their online presentation. The last part of the book documents the exhibition installation.
