  • Comment In 1953 a from settlement archaeological considerations scheduled investigation was carried out in the Rheinbalme in the rear ("Hinterfeld") in Neuburg (municipality Koblach). The approximately 50 m² roofed half cave is located under a 40 m high rock face at the southwest end of the vertical "demolition of Kummen" just above the Rhine valley across from the "Annabergli" at "Montlingen ". It is an ideal location for fishermen and hunters, as well as a most favorable starting point for the crossing of the meandering river in the marshy Lake Constance Rhine Valley in the area of the northern island chain. Cultural strata was found with fire and hearth, with dating finds from the Neolithic period (double-rowed stag harpoon), from the early Bronze Age, the Urnfield period, the Hallstatt and La Tène periods. In 1956 the investigations of the resting place in the Rheinbalme in the "Hinterfeld" near Neuburg, Koblach were continued and its use from the Younger Stone Age to the La Tène period could be defined.
