The buried beauties of Hamburg

Only few of the field monuments in Hamburg are above ground. The work of Hamburg‘s preservation and care of field monuments is focused on exploring the medieval and modern history of the old town centers of Hamburg, Harburg and Bergedorf.

The Archäologischen Museum Hamburg / Stadtmuseum Harburg Helms-Museum has carried out an extensive archaeological excavation at the cathedral square in Hamburg from 2005 to 2006. The results were included in the exhibition “HAMMABURG AND THE BEGINNINGS OF HAMBURG” in the Google Arts project
