Archaeological excavation no. 117 (area T 2017) should aim the structure and development of the settlement at very vicinity of the bi-apsidal rotunda – Mikulčice’s 6th church. Recent deforestation of the southeast edge of the “Těšický les” and its upcoming planting offer short-term opportunity for excavation of this area. In autumn of 2016 geophysical prospection was conducted. Archaeological excavation is caring out on the edge of settlement, on the intersection of sand dune and flood sediments. The research is important both from the point of view of the basic archaeological questions of the 6th church and from the closer knowledge of the extra-mural settlements of the Mikulčice’s settlement.
