Field trip

On the third day of the colloquium, 6th February 2019, participants will have the opportunity to join a field trip to the shores of Lake Biel and Lake Neuchâtel.

The first stop is planned at the bay of Sutz-Lattringen, Lake Biel, with its many Neolithic and Bronze Age pile dwellings. Since 2011, many of them belong to the UNESCO world heritage “Prehistoric Pile-dwellings around the Alps”.  We will visit the Dendrolaboratory and diving headquarter of canton Bern.

Pile dwellings situated in the bay of Sutz-Lattringen.

The second stop will be the Laténium, archaeological park and museum in Hauterive. The museum is located next tof Lake Neuchâtel on the former prehistoric lakeshore settlements of Hauterive - Champréveyres.
