about this bookdeutsch english
The Oberlausitz region, which borders todays Germany, Poland, and the Czech Republic, offers an interesting example of a GIS-based cultural and landscape reconstruction of its multi-ethnic society that can be traced through more than 1000 years of its history. This reconstruction of the Early Medieval and High Middle Ages landscape focuses on the elaboration of the multifaceted relationship between Bautzen/Budyšin and the peripheral settlements and fortifications. It not only examines the settlements around Bautzen but also those in the upper Spree Valley, Northern Bohemia, including Lower Silesia. The chronological variation of the settlement patterns is carried out here by means of statistical spatial analyzes, which includes LCP (least cost path). Finally, this analysis represents a factual basis that constructs its informational strength from different source groups - archaeological, historical, and linguistic. And finally, its validity and power of expression is successfully tested against classical theories and historical hypotheses. The final result provides undoubtedly one of the best examples advocating the application of a geoinformation-based investigative platform for the review of historical theories.
