Burial of Johann Wengemeyer in the former Franciscan Monastery of Annaberg-Buchholz (Erzgebirgskreis). Wengemeyer was killed in May 1514 with a massive blow to the back of his head, probably with an axe, which left a gash in his skull ca. 6 cm wide. His murderers were caught and executed in August 1514 by having their limbs crushed with a cart wheel.  © Landesamt für Archäologie Sachsen

Should Covid-19 regulations in August only allow a low maximum number of participants onsite, an online participation option may be provided. This option will be communicated as early as possible, but hopefully this will not be necessary. Please be aware that in order to be able to attend onsite, you probably will need to be fully vaccined or recently recovered from Covid-19 and its variants. If regulations dictate this, it will be checked at the registration desk. Please check all travel regulations regarding Covid-19 shortly before your departure to Dresden.
