La Hoguette is also the type site of the early Neolithic La Hoguette culture that is found mainly in association with Linearbandkeramic or Limburg pottery in Northern France, The Netherlands, Alsace and Western Germany. It is believed to ultimately derive from the Mediterranean Cardial-Traditions. Important sites of the La-Hoguette culture include Stuttgart-Wilhelma, Dautenheim and Godelau.
The La Hoguette pottery was found under a later megalithic tomb and first misidentified as Linearbandkeramic. La Hoguette marks the westernmost point of the distribution of this culture. The place name La Hoguette is believed to derive from the Old Norse word Haugr meaning a knoll or a hill.
