Join author Veronica Ditko at the Incorporated Orange County Chapter of the New York State Archaeological Association's (IOCCNYSAA) Sept. 16 meeting. Ms. Ditko, who is also Chapter VP, will be presenting “Recent Archaeological Research About the Pfahlbauer” at 7:30pm (on Zoom).
Also known as the Pile Dwellers / Lake Dwellers of Europe, these people lived from Neolithic to Bronze Ages. What is curious about them is that they decided to live on stilted houses in lakes (and currently represent more than 100 UNESCO World Heritage sites!), yet they also farmed the land.
Ms. Ditko will explore the possible reasons why and how they lived, based on archaeological findings, as well as what ended their way of living. (UNESCO photo above of recreated village in Lake Constance, Germany.)
