About: Although it is an artificial lake, the waters of Poulaphuca ebb and flow just like any other and what was once dry land is now a shoreline that the water wears away. During some unusually dry spells between 2006-2009, this abraded shoreline revealed the remains of a Stone Age dwelling. In this article the author describes the archaeological evidence that was uncovered including an unusual quantity of saddle querns located in the vicinity.
