The Digital Corpus of Hillforts in Bohemia collects information on prehistoric and early medieval hillforts available at the Institute of Archaeology of the CAS in Prague as part of the Archaeological Information System of the CR project. Currently, the list contains about 600 prehistoric and early medieval hillforts and hill-top settlements, a part of which is presented here. J. Marounek (National Heritage Institute, Central Bohemia) also takes part in the database development.

The creation and development of the database is supported by the “Memory in the Digital Age” research programme, a part of the Strategy AV21 of the CAS. The data are also made available through the Archaeological Map of the CR and the Digital Archive of the AMCR, as well as in other ways.
