Beschreibung: Kuckenburg near Esperstedt (Saxony-Anhalt) is a hilltop site, about 10 km east of Querfurt, near the river Weida, and has been known as an important site of prehistoric settlement since the early 20th century. In 2005, the Department of Prehistoric Archeology of the FSU and the State Office for Heritage Management and Archaeology Saxony-Anhalt started a small research project on the settlement. This research attested the use of the area since the Late Palaeolithic / Mesolithic, during the Neolithic periods of the Baalberge and the Salzmünde culture, and again during the Late Bronze Age and the early Middle Ages.
The main exploitation phases of the hilltop site can be seen in the late Bronze Age and the early Middle Ages. The project will focus on the settlement chamber of Kuckenburg during the late Bronze Age (phase Ha B). During this time, the area included an open settlement on the opposite bank of the Weida, a regular burial ground with intact remains, and the Kuckenburg itself which, in addition to settlement pits, shows evidence of fortification and a series of irregular burials that hint clearly at the cultic/ritual character of this site. It is important to note that individuals were usually cremated during the Late Bronze Age, and therefore Kuckenburg presents a rare and unique opportunity to shed light on human health, nutrition, and demography in Central Europe during this period.
The project links scholars from FSU and the MPI SHH, as well as between two Departments (DA and DAG) within the MPI SHH. These departments have already been involved in pilot projects that carried out DNA analyses of the special burials to test for DNA preservation and feasibility of in-depth genomic research, as well as initial isotope studies on ten selected skeletons.
