Swords, jewelry and ceramics — finds of German archaeologists from the graves of the Stone Age and the early Middle Ages
German archaeologists have begun investigating a recently discovered Neolithic tomb dating back to the third millennium BC. They also managed to find more than 100 early medieval burials left between 500 and 600 AD.
Among the finds that interested researchers were samples of the Corded Ware culture. In the early medieval graves - swords, spears, shields, bone combs, glasses and earrings.
Ceramics found by archaeologists are decorated with characteristic geometric lines. They were formed by pressing the cord into the clay, after which, after drying, peculiar prints appeared.
Researchers believe that people who decorated ceramics in this way were engaged in cattle breeding and crop production.
As for the early medieval graves, they were dated a century after the fall of the Western Roman Empire. This period is considered a period of migration, when various tribes actively moved across Europe, fought, pushing each other to new territories.
The burial place was located in the southwestern part of Germany, the Geisingen-Gottmadingen region in Tuttlingen.
The finds suggested that the area is much older than earlier ideas, as evidenced by the first written records of settlements here.
