The present volume contains ten contributions introducing different aspects of current settlement research in North-West Germany, focussing on the time frame between the Roman Period and the Early Middle Ages. The settlements of Groß Meckelsen, Loxstedt, and Wittstedt are discussed from different perspectives. These sites had already been excavated some years ago prior to large-scale construction work, but their structure, dating, and function have hitherto only been addressed in short preliminary reports. Their publication in this book also provides new information on the much discussed settlement hiatus around A.D. 600. In addition, this volume presents current interdisciplinary research on the reconstruction of social structures and communication systems along the North Sea coast in Lower Saxony, focussing on three zones around the mouths of the rivers Elbe, Weser, and Hunte. Varied methodological approaches were used in this context, based in particular on pedological and geophysical prospection work, but also including textile archaeology and the re-analysis of old excavations.
