English abstract:
A compd. obtained from an early Iron-Age wood tar via Kugelrohr distn. or extn. was identified as betulin by TLC, 1H- and 13C-NMR, as well as by mass spectroscopy. This result validates the assumption that birch was used for the prepn. of the archaeol. wood tar found at the excavation in Stillfried a.d. Mar., Lower Austria.
