Legendary photography from the beginnings of Slovak archeology and “Prošek-scale”

March 22nd, 2020 § 2

In the photo from the 1950s you can see the overall stratigraphic profile of the famous tell settlement Barca near Košice in the bend of the Myslavka brook. The aim of the photo was to document the overall archaeological situation, and since the research team did not have a scale at hand, the archaeologist Dr. Prošek was placed under the profile.

Since the height of Dr. Prošek was known, it is possible to recalculate the height and dimensions of the profile.
Since then the term “Proškomierka” (Prošek-scale) has been used in the Czechoslovak archaeological slang.

  • Bola som na výskume v Barci aj s Frantom Proškom. Žiaľ asi začiatok jeho choroby bolo to,že sa pri zameriavaní profil zrútil a zasypal ho. Franta skončil v nemocnici na kratší čas.,Stalo sa to v 1954.
    Franta Prošek bol vynikajúci odborník a veľmi dobrý človek, škoda, že nás opustil taký mladý.

    Ďakujem za komentár, pani doktorka. Ja mám žiaľbohu len zprostredkované informácie, ktoré sa nedajú merať s Vašou autopsiou. Nebolo by na škodu vydať pamate na tieto pionierske časy, čo poviete? Ale nie také tie uhladené a korektné, ale zábavné a drsné, ktoré by charakterizovali ducha doby.
    Pozdravujem “poslednú Rimanku” a uvidíme sa možno zase v Stropkove :).
