Die Konstanzer Marktstätte im Mittelalter und in der NeuzeitForschungen und Berichte zur Archäologie in Baden-Württemberg
Constance is one of the towns in Baden-Württemberg that survived World War II largely undamaged. Due to extensive archaeological remains, which are particularly well preserved under the embankments of the former lake shore, the historic centre of Constance became one of the focal points of the federal state's archaeological heritage management since the 1980s. From 1989 to 1992, large-scale excavations were carried out in the area of the “Marktstätte” (marketplace), which stood out by an exceptional density of archaeological features and large quantities of find material. The detailed analysis of the features and finds presented in this volume provides new insights into the urban development during the Middle Ages and early modern times. In addition to building development, the focus is on medieval land reclamation, harbour construction and early modern marketplace use.
