The history of the barley use as a raw material for malt- and beer production in middle ages and early modern era was still in the environment of the czech lands constructed solely on the basis of archival records and historical pictures. Less importance was given to archaeological fi nds. Unjustly neglected remained fi nds of botanical macro remains of barley and barley malt from younger historical epochs, although in the Central European context it is in terms of quantity and quality of the fi ndings a unique fi le. The aim of this article is therefore historical and archaeological context to highlight the benefi ts of archaeo botany for understanding the history of barley, while the integrity of the present all fi ndings malt barley in Czech republic.
