Article
Full-text available
Thirty-nine Neolithic and Early Bronze Age copper objects (primarily axe blades and daggers) from Central, southern and eastern Switzerland or eastern France were analysed typochronologically, chemically and with regard to their lead isotope ratios. This combination of methods allows for more differentiated and reliable conclusions about the proven...
Article
Full-text available
In archaeology, environmental history all too often focused on the individual settlements and on the economic use of their immediate environment. This view fails to acknowledge the importance of other actors (e.g. animals, plants, waters) interacting with humans. Outside the settlements, the traces of humans and these other actors are entangled and...

Introduction to a series of papers representing some of the contributions to a session with the same title, organised by the authors together with Ekaterina Dolbunova, Tryfon Giagkoulis and Goce Naumov, at the 25th Meeting of the European Association of Archaeologists (EAA), 4­-7 September 2019, in Bern. Abstracts of all the presentations can be fo...

Zusammenfassung (english summary below): Aufgrund unserer Erfahrungen mit Ufersiedlungen stellen wir den Ansatz, Siedlungsstrukturen im Neolithikum auf der „Skala Haus-Hof-Dorf“ untersuchen zu wollen, grundsätzlich in Frage. Unserer Meinung nach können wir über das „Leben der Menschen im Neolithikum“ gar nicht genug „erfahren“, wenn wir „nicht über...

165 years after the discovery of pile dwellings in Switzerland, this meeting in Bern should be an occasion to relate archaeological waterscapes to their surrounding landscapes. Due to their inherent fluidity and their impact on cultural phenomena, waterscapes are destined to make us look beyond rigid paradigms, dichotomies, and categories, in order...
Article
Full-text available
The approach to analyse Neolithic settlement structures only on a strict scale of ‘house – farmstead – village‘ is unrewarding in our opinion. Even individualisation, and therefore reconstruction, of separate houses in Neolithic wetland sites is much more problematic than commonly assumed (e.g. distinction of architectural units, rate of dated vs....
Article
Layer taphonomy is one of the major questions in the archaeological research of lakeshore settlements. How fast did these deposits develop? Were they exposed to periodic droughts and decay? Which amount of the originally deposited remains survived until present? Plant macroremains have a great potential as indicators of preservation quality, since...

Article
Full-text available
This article brings together in a comprehensive way, and for the first time, on- and off-site palaeoenvironmental data from the area of the Central European lake dwellings (a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site since 2011). The types of data considered are as follows: high-resolution off-site pollen cores, including micro-charcoal counts, and on-si...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The SNF project 'Formation and taphonomy of archaeological wetland deposits: two transdisciplinary case studies and their impact on lakeshore archaeology' aims to develop new methodolocical standards for a better understanding of layer formation processes in archaeological wetland deposits. The site belongs to the 111 sites of the Unesco World Heri...
