A small village of lake dwellers, restoration. The causeway in the foreground, broken by movable bridges, connected the village with the land. This restoration represents a home of the later lake dwellers. Villages such as this were found at various locations throughout northern Europe from prehistoric times through the Middle Ages.
Lake dwellings (in German, Pfahlbauten
, meaning “pile structures”) were found throughout Europe, particularly in France, Germany, Italy, and Switzerland. The homes were not built directly in lakes, but in the swampy areas at the edges of lakes. Click here
