LM.The excavations started in 1949 on the Kadel on the "Kummen Island Hill", in Kummen, continued from 1951 to 1954. The trenches were variously extended, especially on the W side against the Rhine, on the O side against the "Nellenbürgle" and against the flatter SW slope area of the forecourt. In addition to sufficient dating materials in the Late Neolithic, Early Bronze, Late Bronze Age to Middle Bronze Age and Urnfield time horizons, they also yielded their approximate extent and boundaries as well as various settlement archeology-interesting details. For example, on Late Neolithic slope stabilization, Bronze Age terracing, construction of houses, their purpose, location and settlement area, jobs, "village fence" or perimeter walls, forecourt grounds, accesses and paths, duration of settlement and location in ecumenism. When new construction of the quarry of the Rheinbauleitung on the slope westl, the forecourt worn out Early Bronze Age side skirt by Dipl. Ing. H. Natter 1952 ensured. Finds in the Vlbg.
