The classic Barrandian region represents the type area of the Cadomian (Assyntian) orogeny of Central Europe (Kettner 1917; Svoboda et al. 1966; Holubec 1966, 1968). Transgression of Middle Cambrian and Ordovician rocks succeeded after strong erosion and almost complete beveling of the Cadomian structures. A well-known angular unconformity exists between Cadomian and Variscan structures in the Barrandian. Small-scale structural elements of two Cadomian deformation stages are also preserved in basal Cambrian pebbles.
