Thorsten Lemm: Die frühmittelalterlichen Ringwälle im westlichen und mittleren Holstein

This book, which has been written as a doctoral thesis at the Centre for Baltic and Scandinavian Archaeology, represents the first comprehensive work on the ring-forts from the 9th to the 11th centuries within the former Saxon settlement area north of the river Elbe. In detail the author discusses the fortresses´ locations, constructions and find materials and interprets them within their archaeological, historical and geographical contexts. Even military-theoretical considerations are included within the interpretations. As a result of his analyses and by taking account of recent historical conclusions the author presents an all new perspective on the ring-forts and Saxon Northelbia as a whole.
