At the end of 2014 the Institute of Archaeology of the CAS in Brno published two books on river archaeology as part of its foreign-language series. Lumír Poláček’s Grabungen im Bereich der ehemaligen Flussarme in Mikulčice is the first volume in a planned series of books about the unique large-scale excavations of defunct river channels that were undertaken in Mikulčice in the 1960s–1980s. Volume two: Mikulčice river archaeology. New interdisciplinary research into bridge No. 1 is a collective monograph summing up the results of the recent revision excavation of bridge no. 1 in Mikulčice. Apart from archaeologists, the comprehensive interdisciplinary analysis was also carried out by specialists in dendrochronology, geology, pedology, archaeobotany, radiocarbon dating, palynology, archaeozoology and malacology.
