Two decorated bone tools from the Maglemose site of Hohen Viecheln, Mecklenburg, Germany, are discussed,
as their ornamentation finds their closest counterparts in decorated tools from Zealand, Denmark. A personal
tool kit, consisting of artefacts with the same decoration, motives, composition, style and fabrication, will be
defined here in order to ‘follow’ this style across the landscape. I will also argue that the two decorated mattock
heads found at Hohen Viecheln are indications of human movements from Zealand to Mecklenburg, crossing
the supposed ‘border’ between a Northern and a Southern Maglemose.
