    Today's Lesser Quarter in Prague continues to produce evidence of ironwork workshops from the Early Middle Ages. The nearby Petřín hill was the closest source of ore. The consumption of fuel grew in the late 10th century when metallurgical workshops also appeared on the opposite, flat bank of the Vltava River for almost the following two centuries. To the same area, i.e. the lowest Vltava terrace, belongs the oldest mention of churches in Prague's suburbium (1118). The author deals with the builders of these churches. He uses reports on the presence of Christian slaves in Prague in the 10th-12th centuries. There is plenty of room for interpretation in the centre of the scheme in which the ruler of the area controls the supply of raw materials, and the merchants sell products in their trading networks. Both components of this type of production and distribution centre could contribute to non-agricultural production.
