Description A survey of the deserted medieval village of Opatovice, cadastral district of Hrušky. A geophysical survey conducted at the deserted medieval village (DMV) of Opatovice (cadastral district of Hrušky, South-Eastern Moravia), which was focused on enclosures of deserted medieval villages in the Břeclav Region, identified a rectangular feature, whose longitudinal axis was oriented E-W. The negative magnetic anomalies detected indicate that the feature was built of stone. Its shape, size, orientation and location indicated the possible existence of a church, which was not recorded in written sources. The subsequent ground penetrating radar survey and exploratory drilling confirmed this assumption.
