Frankfurt in the Early Middle Ages: The founders of Harheim
(in German only)
In 2008/2009, archaeologists in Frankfurt-Harheim uncovered rich depots of buried weapons, costly glass vessels and traditional jewellery made of gold and silver, from the period of the 6th to 8th century AD. These indicate the high societal status of the founding families of the Early Middle Ages, which settled here, with the agreement, or on the orders, of the Frankish lords, in order to protect a trans-regional transport route.
