A new house plan of the Funnel(-neck-)beaker west group from Visbek (Lkr. Vechta) During construction works at Visbek-Uhlenkamp II the archaeological excavation firm denkmal3D discovered a Neo - lithic micro-region – consisting of a settlement and burials – hitherto unknown in northwest Germany with the only exception of Flögeln. Apart from the two already known megalithic tombs »Pastors Kamp« and »Stippers Höhe« there are two flat graves and a house plan of the Funnel(-neck-)beaker culture. The two flat graves are covered with cobble stones in the regionally typical way. The house plan can be associated typologically with the houses with wall trenches of the type Flögeln of the Funnelbeaker west group. The pottery dates the house and flat graves to the phase Brindley 4. Furthermore, the close similarity of some vessels from the house and the burials indicates that they belong to the same settlement phase. Translation: M. Struck
