Abstract (in english)
   The archaeologically and geoarchaeologically examined object was interpreted as an underground chamber demarcated by the construction walls without internal segmentation. Basal part was composed by minimally two preparation layers, the first one for draining and the second one for stopping raising humidity, protecting the floor against the smell and also to sterilise it. Both layers were carefully prepared, which suppose enough experiences with such type of work and also a specific reason for such a water protection. There were two more different layers found above. The layer located above the "stop raising humidity" layer contains phytoliths of grasses and corn; it could be interpreted by many ways, from which the most possible is some type of organic matter storage or the storage of some fragile material supposed to be protected against damage or freezing, for example by hay or straw.
