Abstract. – Archaeological excavation at Chieming-Stöttham in the Chiemgau region of Southeast Germany revealed a diamictic (breccia) layer sandwiched between a Neolithic and a Roman occupation layer. This exotic layer bears evidence of its deposition in a catastrophic event that is attributed to the Chiemgau meteorite impact. In the extended crater strewn field produced by the impact, geological excavations have uncovered comparable horizons with an anomalous geological inventory intermixed with archaeological material. Evidences of extreme destruction, temperatures and pressures including impact shock effects suggest that the current views on its being an undisturbed colluvial depositional sequence as postulated by archaeologists and pedologists/geomorphologists is untenable.

Barbara Rappenglück (2013): Myths and Motifs as Reflections of Prehistoric Cosmic Events: Some Methodological Considerations. – ANTHROPOLOGICAL NOTEBOOKS, 19 (SUPPLEMENT), 67-83.

Abstract: The last three decades have seen a growing awareness that the planet Earth and human civilizations might be much more threatened by extraterrestrial objects than previously thought: It has been suggested on many occasions that the course of human prehistory has been remarkably shaped by big meteorite impacts, airbursts of meteoroids, or the load of the atmosphere with cosmic dust. Myths and motifs are interpreted to encode information of such events. This article brings to the fore a series of essential methodological steps which may strengthen such interpretations.

Abstract. – Arguing from a critical reading of the text, and scientific evidence on the ground, the authors show that the myth of Phaethon – the delinquent celestial charioteer – remembers the impact of a massive meteorite that hit the Chiemgau region in Bavaria between 2000 and 428 BC.

Abstract. – The Chiemgau strewn field in the Alpine Foreland discovered in the early new millenniumcomprises more than 80 mostly rimmed craters in a roughly elliptically shaped area with axes of about 60 km and 30 km. The crater diameters range between a few meters and a few hundred meters. Geologically, the craters occur in Pleistocene moraine and fluvio-glacial sediments. The craters and surrounding areas so far investigated in more detail are featuring heavy deformations of the Quaternary cobbles and boulders, abundant fused rock material (impact melt rocks and various glasses), shock-metamorphic effects, and geophysical anomalies. The impact is substantiated by the abundant occurrence of metallic, glass and carbon spherules, accretionary lapilli, and of strange matter in the form of iron silicides like gupeiite and xifengite, and various carbides like, e.g., moissanite SiC. The hitherto established largest crater of the strewn field is Lake Tüttensee exhibiting an 8 m-height rim wall, a rim-to-rim diameter of about 500 m, a depth of roughly 30 m and an extensive ejecta blanket. Physical and archeological dating confine the impact event to have happened most probably between 700 and 300 B.C. The impactor is suggested to have been a lowdensity disintegrated, loosely bound asteroid or a disintegrated comet in order to account for the extensive strewn field. Vollständiger Artikel

Impact of the Study of the Universe in Human Thinking”, Granada September 8-12, 2008, A.S.P. Conf. Ser., 2009.

Abstract. – Did in the Holocene meteorite impacts of a size capable to affect human cultures happen at all and – if the answer is “yes” – which cultural implications did they have? Since a few years this question is fiercely and controversially discussed. The Chiemgau meteorite impact event may provide an important contribution to the discussion. This event stroke south-east Germany very probably in the 1st millenium BC and left a field of about 80 craters. In comparison to other Holocene impacts it provides extraordinary data by the extension of its crater field, the size of the biggest crater, the variety of secondary effects, the direct embedding of the impact layer in an archaeological stratigraphy, and the comparably good dating. The recently known data are introduced and discussed with regard to the question of cultural effects of Holocene impacts.

– Mediterranean Archaeology and Archaeometry, Proceedings of the International Conference on Archaeoastronomy, SEAC 14th 2006, „Ancient watching of cosmic space and observation of astronomical phenomena“, Vol. 6, No. 3 (2006), 101-109.

Deutsche Zusammenfassung. – In der griechischen Mythologie gibt es eine Erzählung, die immer wieder als Beschreibung des Falls eines Himmelskörpers gedeutet worden ist: die Geschichte von Phaethon, der mit dem Sonnenwagen seines Vaters Helios eine verhängnisvolle Fahrt unternimmt. Als erstes stellt dieser Aufsatz die Argumente vor, die von antiken Autoren aufgeführt werden, um diesen Mythos als Widerspiegelung eines Naturphänomens zu interpretieren. Anschließend werden in den alten Beschreibungen von Phaethons Sturz enthaltene Details mit heutigen Kenntnissen über Impaktphänomene verglichen. Des weiteren werden die Texte auf Hinweise zu Zeit und Ort des vermuteten Impakts untersucht. Die so erzielten Ergebnisse stützen die Vermutung, dass der Mythos von Phaethon einen konkreten Meteoritenfall widerspiegeln könnte, nämlich den sog. Chiemgau-Impakt. Dieser Impakt, der ein ausgedehntes Kraterstreufeld von etwa 100 Kratern hinterließ, ereignete sich vermutlich während der Keltenzeit. Eine auffällige Überschneidung zwischen der Überlieferung des Phaethon-Mythos und dem bisher in Betracht gezogenen Zeitrahmen für den Chiemgau-Impakt gibt neue Anhaltspunkte, um den Chiemgau Impakt möglicherweise in die Zeit zwischen 600 und 428 v. Chr. zu datieren.
