Resting on stilts on the margins of lakes and marshes in northern Italy were the houses of the Bronze Age Polada Culture, which lasted from 2200 to 1500 BC.  The wooden piles driven into the ground often are well preserved in the marshy ground and mark the houses of these ancient people.  This film shows how archaeologists, based on excavations at the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Cavriana and Castellaro Lagusello, investigated the construction techniques used for these houses by actually building them.
