in the county of Rendsburg (Schleswig-Holstein). Burial ground of the Germanic pre-Roman Iron Age (6th-4th cents. BC) furnished with painted pottery vessels and iron slag, which indicates a privileged position within the Jastorf culture and points to early iron production through contacts with the Hallstatt culture. The presence of iron ore and slag mounds in the area is known, but cannot definitely be assigned.
