On the third day of the colloquium, 3rd February 2023, participants had the opportunity to join a field trip to the shores of Lake Biel and Lake Neuchâtel.

The first stop was 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 site “Prehistoric Pile-dwellings around the Alps”. We also visited the dendro-laboratory and diving headquarter of Bern Canton.

The second stop was Laténium, an archaeological park and museum in Hauterive. The museum is located next to Lake Neuchâtel on the former prehistoric lakeshore settlements of Hauterive–Champréveyres.
