Heege, Hohenklingen

Due to its excellently preserved medieval substance, Hohenklingen Castle is a jewel in a landscape that is otherwise characterised by thousands of ruins. This was very clearly shown by the latest examinations carried out during its restoration from 2003 to 2007. The results of the investigation were published in a two-volume monograph. The first volume deals with the 800-year history of the castle’s construction and that of its residents, the Barons of Hohenklingen, during the period from 1191 to 1433. The Barons also had residences in Stein am Rhein and were instrumental in the expansion of the small town. These buildings too were excellently preserved and are presented in detail in the book. The second volume deals with the vast array of finds. Tiled stoves bore witness to cold winters and courtly ostentation. The castle cafeteria yielded a rare example of a restaurant inventory from the early days of Swiss tourism. This is a book for all medieval and castle enthusiasts and an indispensable enhancement of and addition to the history of Stein am Rhein, which was published in 2007.

Homberger/Zubler, Medieval and post-medieval pottery from the Schaffhausen region

This work deals with the medieval and post-medieval pottery assemblages from the region of Schaffhausen. The typology devised for and used in the study is presented in detail. The book also includes a computer-assisted seriation, which was used to examine the material from a chronological perspective. New finds and features from important sites in Canton Schaffhausen are presented for the first time. A catalogue of sites contains descriptions of all assemblages used in the seriation, along with those from outside the canton included for the purpose of comparison.
