370 Kilometer Archäologie - Archäologie an der Ethylen Pipeline Süd-Trasse in Bayern, Baden-Württemberg und Rheinland-Pfalz
Measuring more than 370 km in length, the route of the Ethylene Pipeline South runs through the three states of Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg and Rhineland-Palatinate. Between 2007 and 2011 archaeological excavations were carried out on the EPS route. The number of documented sites is in the hundreds, and more than 100 new discoveries impressively demonstrate that such a project has a literally incisive significance for our cultural landscape. Interesting new discoveries could be made even in supposedly well-investigated landscapes. The temporal span of the investigated sites ranges from the Stone Age to the Modern Age, and the spectrum of archaeological features is similarly complex.
