A Lacustrine Revolution: Adaptive Shifts in the Late- and Postglacial of South Central Europe
Author(s): Michael Jochim
The environmental changes in Europe at the end of the last ice age had profound effects on human populations. One of these changes, the development of numerous lakes in the region north of the Alps, created new habitats and niches that were rapidly exploited, with significant effects on many aspects of behavior. The record of environmental and archaeological changes in Switzerland and southern Germany are examined with an emphasis on subsistence, technology, and land use.
