Oldendorf (Luhe): Archaeological Museum

Oldendorf (Luhe)

In
2005, Oldendorf/Luhe Archaeological Museum opened in the "Schemmes
Hus", which was built by Oldendorf teacher Johann Christoph Schmidt in
1750 as a school and residential building. It connects the burial mound finds
of Totenstatt with the impressive and well-known megalithic tombs in the area.

Thematically,
the exhibition is devoted almost exclusively to the migration of the first
farmers and the establishment of their tombs in Luhetal. This historic key
event dates back to the Neolithic era of funnel beaker culture, which began in
this heathland region around 3700 BC.

Aspects
of the living world and the realm of the dead are portrayed; these were
understood by the people then as two sides of a coin. Without the belief in a
life after death, the enormous effort required of the small communities to
build the monumental megalithic tombs would be unthinkable.

Every
first Monday of the month at 19:30, the lecture series "cultural
evening" takes place in Oldendorf/Luhe Archaeological Museum.



Please book guided tours of the museum and Totenstatt in plenty of
time!
