Pfahlbaumuseum Unteruhldingen, Germany

July2011inGermany etc 092

I know the title reads like something I typed while having a stroke, but this is actually German for a very unique archaeological museum. This open air museum lies on Lake Constance in Bavaria and translates into Stilt House Museum.  It consists of reconstructed houses built on stilts in the Neolithic Stone or Bronze ages that show one of the few examples of lake dwellings from this pre-historic era. The museum also displays original items and objects that were archaeological findings from in and around the lake area.  A designated UNESCO world heritage site.  Quite fascinating and worth a daytrip visit if you’re into history and archaeology.
