Subject of the Master’s Thesis

›Wallburgen des ehemaligen Kreises Rastenburg, Ostpreußen (powiat Kętrzynski). Betrachtungen zu einer vernachlässigten Fundgruppe‹

Dominik Janiszewski’s thesis is concerned with the monument group of so-called hillforts, which are significant in terms of settlement archaeology. The archive material and finds retrieved in the 19th and 20th century in the former district of Rastenburg, play a major role in the evaluation of a total of 32 complexes. The state of research, the potential and contents of the sources as well as the interpretation of pre-war investigations are described and commented on in detail.
