Overview

This study focuses on the alternating phases of occupation and abandonment of lake-dwellings within the Alpine region, in particular on Lake Constance and Lake Zurich. Menotti explores a number of questions and phenomena, asking what forces led to abandonment of lacustrine areas, particularly evident in the Middle Bronze Age, and where the people went. Combining environmental and cultural evidence, he analyses lake-level fluctuations through GIS models and their impact on settlements and their inhabitants.
