Excavations carried out between 1981 and 1989 into the prehistoric settlement on the Galgenberg are reported here. The excavations were concerned to examine the establishment, growth and demise of a settlement of the late Neolithic and to relate it to its contemporary context in the north alpine region and in southern Germany in particular. Excavations began on a Cham culture site at the Galgenberg in 1981 and a year later an Altheim culture site, the Ergolding Fischergasse, was discovered and the two were excavated simultaneously under the directorshA of the author.
