The prehistoric lakeshore dwellings of the Alps were built between the Neolithic and the dawn of the Iron Age (from 5300 to 700 BC). They offer exceptional information about the cultural evolution of a large European region due to the remarkable preservation of organic materials, in particular wood. From the second half of the 20th century, the advancement in excavation techniques and the development of dendrochronology will allow the construction of a chronological framework for central Europe, as well as local and regional ecological observations and the identification of the rhythms of villages' development. Under the auspices of UNESCO, the 2010s see the establishment of a broad and harmonized inventory of prehistoric lake-shore settlements of the alpine and listed as World cultural heritage in June 2011.
