This article discusses the relationship between wet contexts and dry contexts or
settlement depositions during the Iron Age on the Fries-Drents plateau. Although
similar objects were used for special depositions in both dry and wet contexts, the
distributions differ. Wet context depositions seem to have been ruled by structuring
principles related to the area as a whole, while depositions in settlements were a
local choice.
