Since may of this year, researchers are starting to wear again on a smaller parcel, layer by layer. First results of this work were presented on Friday morning, the new city and County archaeologist, Milena wingen box, as well as the excavation Director, Dr. Thilo Warneke from the Marburg Institute of Scientific Foundation - archaeology (WiBa).
"has Already been dug in the years 1898/99 Professor Joseph Vonderau here," explains Milena wingen field. The namesake of the local Museum, and the Nestor of the early history of research was then, among other things, on wooden piles. "Vonderau took on that very early here a pile-dwelling settlement has been. A re-examination of its archaeological pieces found a hundred years later, that it must have rather traded for a mill to supply the neighbouring monastery."
The excavation work of the last weeks had been for archaeologists rather atypical, says the excavation Director, Warneke said: "Normally, the youngest layers are at the top and the oldest at the bottom. Since it is alluvial soil, by mixing finds from 8,000 years ago to a height." Only animal bones, ceramic shards, leather bands and wooden posts from the early middle ages were discovered, but also a piece of a knife from the stone age, so 6,000 years before Christ.
The archaeological excavations should be completed next week. Until the findings are first prepared by a conservator, are evaluated, it will surely take another year. For an archaeologist, Milena wingen box, however, it is already today: "Everything speaks for the fact that the plot was here, soon after the monastery's founding is a supply area for the monks."
