The Lake Dwellings of Switzerland and Other Parts of Europe free pdf Excerpt from The Lake Dwellings of Switzerland and Other Parts of Europe When about to visit Switzerland the summer before last, I was naturally desirous of obtaining information as to the antiquities discovered of late years in what have been rightly designated, by a well-known antiquarian friend, as the 'wonderful Pfahlbauten' (Habitations lacustres), or lake dwellings. Some very excellent notices of them had appeared in English by Mr. Wylie, Sir John Lubbock, Bart. (since then printed with additional information in his late work), and Sir Charles Lyell, Bart.- but still there seemed a want of precise and definite information respecting them. On arriving in Switzerland, I found that the inhabitants were fully aware of the rich archaeological mine, which had been first brought into notice by Dr. Ferdinand Keller, the excellent president of the Antiquarian Association of Zurich. The investigation of the various lake dwellings is now carried on with a zeal and energy, which might be emulated with advantage by our own richer and more numerous societies. Almost all the museums of Switzerland now contain valuable collections of these antiquities: there is hardly a native who is not fully alive to the value of these discoveries.
