Introductory lectures: Acquainting with basic archive definitions, types of material and use of archive tools. Part of the lessons therefore takes place in an archive institution.
The majority of content is intended for obtaining knowledge of institutions as the main creators of archive material or historical sources in general. A chronological overview systematically covers the areas of: administration (secular and church); judicial system, economy and social activities. Constant overlapping with historical geography and illustration with archive sources enable synchronous knowledge of the topic, that is the important orientation through time and space and the ability to adopt judgments, where and how to find sources for a certain research.
