This article consults some of the few visual representations, as well as distinct topographical situations to investigate the Bronze Age handling of spatial issues such as topographical knowledge, land-based orientation, and the use of space as a repository of knowledge. Material depositions are also considered within the context of the Bronze Age land acquisition scenario in the Central Alps. Their significance within complex strategies of spatial appropriation has to do with the materialization of mental and cognitive maps, and through them the reproduction of spatial knowledge and cultural memory.
