Traditional craft production and agriculture in Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia

A database of photographs documenting traditional craft and agricultural production in Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia.

Documentary and photographic holdings deposited at the Institute of Ethnology of the CAS served as a basis for a CD-ROM. Expert descriptions of the individual photographs with localization, dating and a link to a map and glossary of regional or trade expressions, selective bibliography and an English résumé were added to the sources. The entire corpus is accompanied by a scientific study on traditional craft production and agriculture with a list of recommended reading. The edition comes with a map where locations of individual traditional craftsmen, holders of the Folk Tradition Bearer 2001-2010 title, are marked. Another map documents traditional craft production in 1952-89. The database is accessible on CD-ROM.
