The Lauresham open-air laboratory is located in the heart of the Lorsch Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage site that was redesigned in 2014 and greatly expanded. The complex topic of manorialism, an important part of early medieval social structure, is being explained on the accessible 1:1 model covering an area of 4.1 hectares. This happens by means of an ideal-typical central yard of the 8/9th century. Additionally, Lauresham also represents a forum of experimental archaeological research for testing different mechanic and agricultural work techniques. Based on recent research results in settlement archaeology a team of experienced craftsmen established a building ensemble under supervision of academic bodies like the Institute for Archaeology at the University of Hamburg. This includes living and economic buildings, barns, and magazines as well as a chapel. In addition to these there are different kinds of economic useful areas – meadows, fields, and gardens.

Picturesque farm wasn't open when we visited but you can get a sense of what it was like to work and live within this environment between the 8-10th centuries.
