Medieval village findings on display in Brno

23-04-2013

The Dietrichstein palace in Brno is hosting an exhibit of the remains and reconstructions of the village of Bystřec in South Moravia, which is the best preserved medieval village in the Czech Republic. The village was burned in 1401 and remained covered by topsoil for 600 years, until it was uncovered by archeologists 30 years ago. This is the first exhibit that shows objects found at the site, and includes reconstructions of village life.
