In 2017, archaeological excavations took place again on the Glaubeg plateau as part of the 5th Summer Academy of Hesse ARCHEOLOGY. The focus of the investigation was the High Middle Ages (Staufer period) settlement and the planned expansion from a castle into a city. The cemetery could also be surveyed in the search for the location of the church on the plateau. This preliminary report summarizes the findings of the second of three excavation campaigns.
