In the summers of 2020 and 2021, a team of archaeologists and palaeoecologists examined the “Flözerbändli” site, a rocky overhang located directly above the right bank of the River Muota at an elevation of 740 m a.s.l. The excavations unearthed Early Mesolithic layers which yielded charcoal fragments from the period between 9746 and 8294 BC, stone...

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...

The Berglibalm site is located in the municipality of Muotathal in the Bisistal valley at an altitude of 1140 m a.s.l. The excavated area of 2015 measured 4 m2 and yielded the remains of a single-phased Early Mesolithic layer dating from the period around 8100 BC. The charcoal concentrations recorded showed that hazel and maple were the main specie...
During the Last Glacial Maximum, Switzerland was almost entirely covered with ice. However, in the ice-free region situated less than 50 km north of the glaciers, human occupation is confirmed as early as 23,000 cal BP. Numerous sedimentary sequences in lakes and mires have produced a wealth of proxy data indicating that environmental conditions im...
The two Magdalenian open-air sites Champréveyres and Monruz, on the northern shore of Lake Neuchâtel, were occupied during the warm season, predominantly during the spring and early summer. The diverse faunal assemblages include the horse as the dominant species, which yielded 70 and 90 % of the weight of acquired animals, respectively. Due to thei...
