Abstract

The reconstruction of the history of wheel, chart and draft animals in prehistoric times is primarily based on direct finds like wheels, parts of charts or jokes. Other possibilities are osteological evidences for draft animals. But it is also very important to try to reconstruct the history of the landscape and the settlement patterns. This is the prerequisite for understanding since when the bringing into action of draft animals, wheels and charts made sense. The archaeobiological investigations from the Neolithic lake shore settlements at the Lake Zürich (town of Zürich) gave sensible indications that this was the case at the transition from the early to the late Late Neolithic period (Jung- / Spätneolithikum), from the Pfyn to the Horgen culture. From the Horgen culture onwards, there is an augmentation of settlements and there are also signs for a sensible opening of the landscape. In addition, we can suppose a diversification of the economy. Therefore, from the Horgen culture onwards a use of draft animals and charts makes sense.
