From Roman Vindobona to Medieval Vienna – uncertain beginnings, structural development and a lot of questions

Ingeborg GAISBAUER, Stadtarchaeologie Wien, Austria Vienna’s medieval beginning represents a very special topic and research possibility, mostly because there is still so much left in the dark. At the moment, we lack certainty about the where, or the when of Vienna’s first post-roman settlement impulses. Continuous settlement activity from the 9th century onward is an option but the possibility of more than one attempt and intermittent periods of abandonment cannot be dismissed either. While at the end of the 11 th century and the beginning of the 12 th century tracing patterns of activity becomes more feasible, there is still a shortage of distinct structures and our understanding of Vienna as a complex focus point of various economic, political and ecclesiastical interests is still non-satisfying. Acting as a hope giving counterbalance are new multidisciplinary approaches, offering us a new perspective and fresh data concerning old problems such as the so called “dark earth” and the long discussed matter of Viennas first legendary “castle” in the northeastern corner of the former roman...

Fortified Vienna from the 13th to the 18th centuries

Heike KRAUSE, Stadtarchaeologie Wien, Austria Intensive research into the fortifications of Vienna was prompted by several excavations carried out by the Stadtarchäologie Wien in recent years in the city centre. It led to an interdisciplinary project, which has resulted in numerous publications. Written and pictorial sources relating to the medieval defences and the early modern fortifications were attained and analysed critically, while excavation results were brought together. Not only the historic phases of the fortifications up to and including their demolition, but also the architects and engineers responsible were revealed in this way. With the help of geo-referenced historical plans and archaeological data, the course of the medieval town wall and the extent of the later fortifications were reconstructed and the former structures located in the modern urban area. The Urban Fortifications GIS developed on this basis enables the accurate definition of areas of potential concern, meaning that precise predictions about probable existing remains can be made in advance of construction...
