Thank you for visiting this temporary page, accompanying the Hospental-Moos poster. I presented this poster at the “Table ronde “Jeunes chercheurs” – Des techniques aux territories. Nouveaux regards sur les cultures mésolithique”, Nov. 22-23rd 2012 in Toulouse, FR. (Yes, I agree, that’s quite a title!) This page provides some additional information about the ongoing post-ex work on Hospental-Moos and the content of the poster.


Hospental-Moos during the excvation, August 2010

Below you find the references to the texts mentioned on the poster. Clicking here will get you to the posts I have written about the fieldwork and the site in general on this blog and on the Apine Archäologie-Blog.

The site and the finds is published in the 2013 volume of the Urner Historisches Neujahrsblatt (see here for more information and a pdf). (Together with articles on the medieval and roman finds from the Urseren Valley survey; a micro-botanical core taken from an upland moor near the site; an article on the geology of the region and the vegetational history/(sub-)fossil wood samples).

The fieldwork and post-excavation work was carried out by ProSpect and commisioned by Canton Uri.
