Excerpt from The Model Republic: A History of the Rise and Progress of the Swiss People

The ancient lake village, situated near where Auvernier now stands, on the shore of the Lake of Neuchatel, furnishes many specimens of the bronze age, as do several other sites in different localities. Many of the specimens show a high degree of artistic skill in their manufacture, and indicate a great advance in mental culture on the part of those that made them. Bronze spear-heads and swords, an anvil, Chisels, knives, plain and ornamental rings for personal adornment, gold studded brooches, and a large quantity of pottery, beauti fully shaped and finely made, are some among the many articles that have been recovered.

On this same Lake of Neuchatel, at a settlement near Marin, iron takes the place of bronze and stone in most of the articles brought to light; and, from the still greater beauty and perfection shown in their pro duction, this Village must have been of a much later date than those in which bronze or stone alone were in use.
