1363 DE/IT - Prehistoric Pile dwellings around the Alps (2011)

Brief Description

"This serial property of 111 small individual sites encompasses the remains of prehistoric pile-dwelling (or stilt house) settlements in and around the Alps built from around 5000 to 500 B.C. on the edges of lakes, rivers or wetlands. Excavations, only conducted in some of the sites, have yielded evidence that provides insight into life in prehistoric times during the Neolithic and Bronze Age in Alpine Europe and the way communities interacted with their environment. Fifty-six of the sites are located in Switzerland. The settlements are a unique group of exceptionally well-preserved and culturally rich archaeological sites, which constitute one of the most important sources for the study of early agrarian societies in the region."

阿尔卑斯周围的史前干栏屋定居地遗址
这个世界文化遗产由111个史前干栏屋定居地遗址组成。它们建于公元前5000年到公元前500年之间,分布在阿尔卑斯周围湖泊,河流和湿地的边缘。对少数几个遗址进行的发掘工作已经为新石器和铜器时代人类的生活和人类社群与大自然接触的方式提供了证据。其中有五十六个定居地遗址位于瑞士境内。这些遗址是保存特别完好,文化底蕴深厚的考古地点。它们为本区域内的早期农耕社会研究提供了重要的资料。
