The Institute of Archaeology was founded in 1919 as the State Institute of Archaeology within the framework of the Ministry of Schools and National Education. In 1953 it was incorporated into the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences and from 1992 it became part of the Academy of Science of the Czech Republic. The Institute of Archeology, which is based in Prague, is composed of the largest group of professional archaeologists in the Czech Republic. Their topics of study range across the complete spectrum of archaeological subjects that provide the evidence for human activity and social development, within the territory of the Czech Republic, from the Paleolithic to early modern times. The archaeological resources utilised in these studies range from portable objects to individual sites and complete landscapes. During field and theoretical research great attention is devoted to the application of a variety of methodological approaches and potentials. Emphasis is also placed on interdisciplinary cooperation, especially in the field of natural and historical sciences.
