In this paper, the problem of fixing of chronology and the function of bridges has been compared to results of typological and chronological analysis of moveable artefacts found in the area of the remains of the bridges and to dating of local settlement structures. Four main phases of development of bridge building connected with specific social and cultural factors have been distinguished.
