The discovery of a dwelling mound near Oberröblingen in Saxony-Anhalt is the first find of its type in Germany and has caused something of a stir in the archaeological establishment. Thought to be around 7,000 years old, the oval-shaped mound, which is roughly 100 meters long, 60 meters wide and 1.8 meters high, consists of the clay remains of centuries of previous structures.
