Archaeological Survey Weikersbach 2019

Manuel Scherer-Windisch and Daniel Brandner carried out large-scale surveys in the prehistoric mining district of Weikersbach (Saalfelden on the Steinernes Meer) in October and November 2019. In the process, several copper smelting sites mentioned in the past by Preuschen and Pittioni (1955) were relocated and, where possible, finds (including slag, pottery and charcoal for radiocarbon dating) were recovered. In addition, a previously unknown copper smelting site was discovered and sampled. The remains showed up in the form of a smelting furnace, which was cut when a forest road was built, and a sand slag heap.
