Celtic Village at the Stoanabichl

Experience millennia of history anew!

It was more by chance than anything else that a large archaeological burial ground from the Hallstatt period (750 - 600 BC) was discovered in the area of Untersteinfeld in April 1962 in the course of the new laying of Uttendorf's local water pipeline.

Soon after, the location of a prehistoric settlement at Stoanabichl was successfully established, which is connected to the burial ground by an old path.

The findings of the excavations at Stoanabichl indicate a very early settlement (around 1,800 BC to the late antiquity 4th/5th century AD).

Uttendorf is of supra-regional importance as an archaeological site with far-reaching trade relations.

Only here are all areas of prehistoric life recorded in one place: Settlement, cemetery, mining and trade routes.

In 2001 the reconstruction of a Celtic village was started. The inhabitants at that time lived from copper mining (Viertalalm 1,600 m above sea level). The barter trade with this coveted raw material led, as findings show, to contacts with distant regions, such as Upper Italy, Slovenia, the northern foothills of the Alps.

The village is an active museum of experience, where, besides interesting information, it is possible to make the simplest tools and objects by oneself.

In short, we try to reconstruct the way of work and life of this period and to demonstrate in a very vivid way how the village life could have happened among the Celts at that time.

 

 

The Celtic Village is easily accessible via the Butterfly Trail.
