Rekonstruktion Lagerstätte Homo erectus

  • Oberfell

On the Bleidenberg in Oberfell is the reconstruction of the Homo erectus camp site. This camp site of Paleolithic man (Homo erectus) is documented by Paleolithic finds, such as simple sharp-edged stone tools, hand axes in gravel layers of the Quaternary period. These finds can be found in glass showcases in the small museum cultural center "Altes Pfarrhaus", Oberfell. On the Bleidenberg there is a reconstruction made of Corten steel: man with spear, woman lighting fire, dwelling and prey animals as well as the forest elephant (4 m shoulder height; 4.5 t heavy sculpture) and a woolly rhinoceros. Interesting is the size comparison between humans and animals as well as the use and production of the simplest tools and weapons. The sculptures and the replica make the history a little more vivid. The cultural site can be explored via the Bleidenberger Ausblicke dream trail as well as via the themed time travel.
