Swissinfo--a branch of the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation--published this curious article about ancient lake settlements in November 2011. It was in 1854 when the first Swiss "lake-dweller" village was discovered outside Zurich, and since then over fifty more have been uncovered. Dating from roughly 5.000 to 500 BCE, these villages provide archaeologists a glimpse into the lives of prehistoric peoples during the Neolithic and Bronze Ages.
