The site in the Rhineland, 50 km from Cologne, of a 9th- and 10th-century fortified manor which developed into a feudal castle. Excavations have shown a stage-by-stage evolution from a flat site in the river bend in the 9th century to a timber manorial complex on top of a mound, surrounded by ancillary dwellings.
