Wang is a municipality in the district of Freising in Bavaria in Germany.


Wang is home to a large Neolithic Archaeological site with up to six phases of occupation. It was first excavated by Jens Luning in the 1980s where several intercutting periods came to pass. It is also one of the most southernly eras of the first LBK (Linearbandkeramik) horizon period when sedimentary ideas, although not necessarily new people, came to central Europe. Most famous for the longhouse, this area uncovered several belonging to the LBK.

It has recently been reopened by A.W.R Whittle and D.Hoffman (2008) 50 meters south of the original excavation where another three longhouses were fully excavated and 3 more uncovered. Further investigations will take place in the 2010 and 2011 seasons.
