Forschungen und Berichte zur Archäologie in Baden-Württemberg

For centuries, the town of Biberach preserved its largely undisturbed town centre with a considerable number of late medieval buildings. This volume presents the results of two excavations at very different locations within the medieval urban structure. The analysis of the excavation on Viehmarktplatz focuses on questions of the beginning of the settlement and the development on its periphery, and thus on the first town fortifications. The investigation of the building at Marktplatz 7, on the other hand, is concerned with the building history and use of a late medieval town house in a central location between the church and the market. In the course of its long history it was used by a pharmacist, among others. By presenting and interpreting the features and the finds from both excavations, the authors create a multifaceted picture of everyday life in a medieval town.
