[Arkeburg. A hillfort in the Marsh.]
The Arkeburg, an early medieval castle near the town Goldenstedt in Lower Saxony, surrounded by marshland and heath, is one of the most important archaeological monuments in northern Germany. As the largest hillfort in the northwest of Germany, it still impresses its visitors, who roam its walls, nowadays covered with dense forest. For a long time, the history of the Arkeburg was shrouded by the dark veil of the past. Thanks to the initiative of the Anna-and-Heinz-von-Döllen-Foundation, in 2014 an interdisciplinary team of scientists began archaeological and historical research on the Arkeburg in order to finally lift the proverbial veil to uncover its mysteries and shed light on its hitherto hidden history. This book presents the findings of the first excavation campaign and in 14 articles embeds the Arkeburg as a vivid piece of local history into the fascinating natural landscape of Goldenstedt.
