This extensive site with excellently preserved cultural sediments is located in the protected zone of Lake Greifensee and harbors a wealth of scientific potential for future research. For example, the site was built above a slanting sea floor, which must have caused special challenges, and poses interesting questions about their construction.  Among the discovered artifacts is a piece of wound-up copper wire and a copper dagger, dating to the Pfyn culture, which reveal the early metalworking practices in the region.
