Remnants of 9th century walls found in Prague

Archaeologists have discovered the remains of walls dating to the 9th and 10th centuries in Malostranske namesti square in Prague. The 6 meter high walls were constructed of wood and clay.

"Prague was a bustling trade center at the time. Strong fortification was important for the development and safety of trade," says archaeologist Jarmila Cihakova. She is hoping to find a medieval mint or goldsmith's shop in future excavation.
