The Megalithic Landscape of Altmark (DFG)


Information about the project
Financed by: DFG

The excavations of two megalithic tombs (Lüdelsen) and the application of sondages at an enclosure and a settlement site near Tangeln (Denis Demnick u. Sarah Diers), combined with pollen analysis and the examination of sediments, should enable the reconstruction of the Middle-Neolithic landscape with its grave and settlement sites. The relationship between Neolithic monumental architecture, settlement structures and environmental changes can be interpreted by jointly analysing palaeoecological data, surveys, grave site research and test excavations at settlement sites and enclosures.
