'Ullrich H, Gramsch B, 2015: Menschliche Skelettreste und Schmuckzähne vom mesolithischen Moorfundplatz Friesack in Brandenburg. Anthropologie (Brno) 53, 1-2: 315-327'.
The archaeological finds from the Mesolithic bog site Friesack 4 in the north eastern German federal state Brandenburg comprise 12 bone fragments and six teeth of man, including four perforated teeth ornaments. They are dated to the late Preboreal, the early Boreal and to the earlier Atlantic times. The bone fragments are interpreted as relics from Mesolithic burials on the settlement site itself or in the immediate neighbourhood. They could have reached only secondarily to their find position in the subaquatic sediments of the former lake adjacent to the settlement site. The perforated human teeth could also derive from destroyed graves, or had been lost on the site itself and were transported together with the eroded sediments to their position. Noteworthy is a perforated molar of a child which in the life time of the child was not broken through in the jaw, therefore it could have been extracted only after the death of the child.
