- Pfyn culture
The Pfyn Culture is one of several archaeologically-defined cultures of the
Neolithicperiod in Switzerland. It dates from c. 3900 BC to c. 3500 BC.
pigfarming occurred during the Pfyn culture in the eastern part of the Alpine foreland. Keeping large numbers of pigs is typical of the Horgenand Corded Wareculture. This 'pig economy' was exported westward by the Horgen culture.
