The prehistoric epochs can be reconstructed exclusively through material remains. Only in the last centuries before the turn of the millennium do written testimonies appear. The mobility of people and objects has therefore long been one of the major topics in archaeological research. The lecture will show which forms of mobility and migration can be proven with archaeological methods and what picture we can form today. The examples under discussion range from the earliest peopling of North America and the Neolithisation of Europe to the historically described migrations of Iron Age groups in the vicinity of the Alps. The lecture focuses on the archaeological evidence of mobility and migration and discusses the limits and possibilities of modern prehistoric research.
