Dendrochronological dates (the first laboratory for Dendrochronology in Switzerland was established in Zurich in 1970) revolutionized the chronology of the late Neolithic and Bronze Age in Central Europe. In many cases this dating technique proved to be the only means of distinguishing between the individual settlements, for there were only a few decades of occupation between some of them. Today we are no longer surprised by the regular layouts of the prehistoric villages, with their numerous houses standing side by side in straight rows.
