Information brochure 'Pfahlbauten - Palafittes - Palafitte...'
The 104-page publication shows the many facets of the pile-dwelling phenomenon on more than 340 colored pictures. They are accompanied by a short but explicit text based on the work of two specialists of the pile-dwellings, Dr. Peter Suter (Archaeological Service of Canton Bern) and Dr. Helmut Schlichterle (Landesamt für Denkmalpflege Baden-Württemberg).
This booklet explains the everyday life of the population living between 5000 and 500 BC (agriculture and animal husbandry, techniques and commerce, clothing and ornaments). The most fascinating finds from Switzerland, Austria, France, Germany, Italy and Italy are richly illustrated. But you can also discover the methods used to preserve the endangered sites for the future generations and the efforts done to bring these sites nearer to a wider audience.
