    Long term archaeological research of the Early Medieval agglomeration at Žatec was combined with archaeobotanical analyses of urban layers. Macroremains, pollen and charcoal samples were taken mostly from sunken settlement objects and moats that were a part of the urban fortification. Analysed sediments were dated according to a detailed pottery chronology. The main aim of the research was to detect important changes in cereal crop production that coincided with the development of the town as evidenced in the archaeological record. Pollen and charcoal data were used to reconstruct the natural environment of the town and its vicinity.
