Houses of the Baden culture at the Balatonőszöd — Temető dűlő site . A large settlement of
the Baden culture was unearthed on a coherent surface of 100000 square metres during
excavations preceding the construction of the new track of highway M 7 at Balatonőszöd in
2001–2002. The Late Copper Age settlement stood on the bank of a lake and along a
stream that ran into the lake. The remains of four buildings (house foundations, daub
fragments and miniature house models) were uncovered from the classical phase of the
culture. The buildings were overground wood-structure houses plastered with daub and
raised on posts above the waterlogged territory. They could have profane and sacral
functions as well.
