Celtic village on the Stoanabichl It was pure chance that a large archeological burial ground from the Hallstattzeit (750 - 600 BC) was found in the "Untersteinfeld" area in April 1962. It only happend because the local Uttendorf water pipe was transferred and renewed at that time. Not long afterwards a prehistoric settlement was found at the Stoanabichl, which was connected to the burial ground by an old way. The findings at the Stoanabichl give evidence of a very early settlement (approx. 1,800 BC until the 4th/5th century AD).
Uttendorf with its archeological findings has national importance and looks back to busy trade relations. Only here all kinds of prehistoric way of life are existent in one place: settlement, burial ground, mining and trade relations. In 2001 the reproduction of a Celtic village has been started. The inhabitants of those settlements lived from copper mining (Viertalalm, 1,600m above sea level). Barter with this very sought-after raw material brought them in contact with very distant regions like Northern Italy, Slovenia and the northern foothills of the Alps.
