As one of the oldest (around 4000 BC) Neolithic sites on Lake Zug, Cham-Eslen features a single house built on a small island that currently lies below water level. Since it was exposed to strong erosion, it was completely excavated in several campaigns between 1996 and 2013. The unusually isolated setting of the single building raises the question...

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...

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...

Three elk (Alces alces) bones found in 1955 in Zug-Gartenstadt, Switzerland, two shoulder blades and a tibia fragment, have been analysed anew: They date to the Late Ice Age around 12400 BP (12776-12220 calBC) according to two C14 dates - the finds are currently the oldest known elk bones in Switzerland after the Last Glacial Maximum and represent...

A small exhibition near their find spot shows the remains of the Rotkreuz mammoth bones and tusk found in 2015. In addition to display cases containing the finds and panels with text and images, the exhibition links to interactive 3D models of the bones derived from CT scans (accessible via https://skfb.ly/6BRT6). These can be 3D printed and used i...

In 2015, a tusk and several postcranial bones of a woolly mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) were found during construction work in Risch-Rotkreuz (Canton Zug, Switzerland). Radiocarbon dated to around 17,000 calBP, the capital bull is one of the latest known mammoth finds from the Swiss plateau shortly before the species went extinct regionally. Thou...

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...

Das letzte Zuger Mammut ist zurück! Nach fast zweijähriger Konservierung und umfangreichen wissenschaftlichen Analysen sind die Knochen und der Stosszahn des Mammuts von Risch-Rotkreuz wieder an ihren Fundort zurückgekehrt. Sie werden hier erstmals in konserviertem Zustand gezeigt. (Ausstellung in Rotkreuz 5.-30.11.2018) The last mammoth from Zug...

In 2015 the skeletal remains of a late glacial bull mammoth, approximately 17,000 years old, were discovered in Risch-Rotkreuz (Canton Zug, Switzerland, location: https://s.geo.admin.ch/7d5a3a861a), see https://goo.gl/2Efdze for the original publication. In the meantime bones and tusk have been analysed both for stable isotopes and aDNA (see https:...

The Roman villa rustica of Cham-Heiligkreuz (Canton Zug, Switzerland; see https://goo.gl/9qtK7w for its location on a map) was partly excavated in the 1930ies. The exact position of the excavation trenches has been debated for a long time and was only reconstructed in 1993 using archival data. This placement has now been verified by a combination o...

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....

In July 2015, a tusk and several bone fragments of an adult mammoth bull have been unearthed on a construction site in Risch-Rotkreuz, Canton of Zug. They have been dated to the end of the last ice age at around 15'000 BC by AMS radiocarbon measurements. The discovery of the mammoth remains entailed international media coverage.

In July 2015, a tusk and several bone fragments of an adult mammoth bull have been unearthed on a construction site in Risch-Rotkreuz, Canton Zug, Central Switzerland. The perfectly preserved skeletal elements have been dated to the end of the last ice age at around 15'000 BC by AMS radiocarbon measurements, which is interesting also from the point...

Zusammenfassung: Die Rettungsgrabungen auf der Rothuswiese in Zug (2001-2003) haben aussergewöhnlich gut erhaltene Funde und Befunde aus der Mittelbronzezeit geliefert. Zwei nebeneinanderliegende Gruben mit einer komplexen Schichtabfolge und einer grossen Menge an Keramik und anderen Objekten wurden bereits untersucht. Die vorliegende Teilauswertun...

Die mehrfache Besiedlung dieses Feuchtbodenfundplatzes sowie die starke Aufarbeitung der Fundschichten durch den Zugersee waren schlechte Voraussetzungen für die Konservierung von Befunden. Erhalten haben sich im Wesentlichen nur Steinkonzentrationen sowie steinarme Zonen, Lehmlagen und Konzentrationen von Rindenstücken. In akribischer Kleinarbeit...

Im folgenden Artikel wird über die jüngste Tauchgrabungskampagne an der jungneolithischen Fundstelle Cham ZG, Eslen berichtet. Eine wichtige Erkenntnis dieser Kampagne war, dass die Erosion am Seegrund hier messbar stärker wirkt als bisher angenommen. Dazu wurde zur üblichen Feingrabung auch eine Grobgrabungsmethode angewendet. Grosses Gewicht wurd...
