This volume reports on the excavation (1996-1999) of the deserted medieval village of Edingerode in Hannover. More than four and a half hectares of settlement were revealed, including a large 12th-century farmyard. Numerous house ground plans were also uncovered, most of which dated to phases in the 9th century and in the 11th and 12th centuries. Much of the volume comprises an illustrated catalogue of archaeological evidence from Edingerode as well as comparable evidence from other deserted medieval villages in Hannover. The preceding discussion considers the types of finds, structures and features from Edingerode, supported by documentary evidence, and then places the settlement within a wider consideration of medieval German towns. German text, English summary.
