Description

A much-discussed topic in the studies of Alpine region lake-dwellings is their chronology and continuity. This study includes an analysis of the MBA occupational hiatus, its likely causes, and where the lake-dwellers might have moved. Environmental and cultural factors are considered, and the analysis centres on lake-level fluctuations around present-day Lakes Zurich and Constance between the 15th and 12th centuries BC.
