The present paper discusses a site in the western coastal district of the Dutch province of Noord-Holland. Discovered were one or two partially two- and partially three-aisled house-plans and ard-marks on the transition of a dune, lying on top of a coastal barrier, to a dune valley. The stratigraphical evidence indicates that the habitation preceded the agricultural activities. All together this human presence dates somewhere between c. 2000-1850 BC, the final stage of the Bell Beaker Culture and the onset of the Barbed Wire Beaker Culture in the Netherlands
