STONE AGE HUNTING BASE
The outdoor excavation site is located on a small natural terrace at 1,950m above sea level, where Niedertal valley and Rofental valley meet. In the past, these two valleys formed the natural border line of the huge hunting areas reaching up to the mighty peaks of the main Alpine ridge. Already around 2000 B.C. (early Bronze Age) the upper part of the valley was used as grazing area for sheep and goats.
