Countrywide Project „Boiohaemum – In Ancestors Footsteps

Internet-based educational encyclopaedia www.boiohaemum.cz is named after the Latin name of our country from the times of Celts. The content of the pages is divided into the thematically focused chapters. It allows the detail structuring of information and professionally prepared particulars of our history starting from prehistory through to the early Middle Ages. The material and spiritual aspects of contemporary life are described here together with the list of relating publications and reconstructions. The texts are prepared in accordance with the available specialized literature. The factual proof-editing is made by professional archaeologists.
The project includes regular news mailing for the registered readers.

The daily attendance of the website is 800-1000 readers. Yearly costs of operation represent approx. CZK 90 000 (EUR 3 300).

Praboleslav (Ancient Boleslav town)
A spacious Chlum Natural Park is stretched between the towns Mladá Boleslav and Dobrovice. An ancient fortification is located here. Presently, the original settlement experiences a vast devastation resulting from four-wheelers rides (the riders are using the bumps – remains of ancient fortification for joyrides).  KELTOI wants to build the tourist educational walking trail here, that would provide a sufficient amount of information to the visitors about the location in question – this measure could enhance its protection.

The aim of the project is the establishing of tourist educational walking trail dedicated to historical period of the Slavs´ inhabitation of the area, i.e.  8th – 10th century A.D.  Three info boards should be located here: Board 1 – Šance location, Board 2 – Chloumek village centre, Board 3 Na Hrádku fortification. The total distance of the trail is 1,6 km. Also suitable for cyclists.  
Marketing will be effected by printed info materials (a leaflet with the trail map, distributed in Info Centers in Mladá Boleslav and Dobrovice).
