Graves from the Merovingian period (500-750 AD) were often reopened after burial. This project explores the various possible interpretations of this phenomenon, focusing on cemeteries from The Netherlands and surrounding regions.
A number of cemeteries in the Netherlands are being studied and published by the members of the project team.
In 1957 the largest Merovingian cemetery of the Dutch province of Noord-Brabant was discovered when the foundations were laid for an exceptional house designed by the famous Dutch architect Gerrit Rietveld.
The Anastasis project has as its goal the analysis and publication of a series of Merovingian or early medieval cemeteries in the Southern and Central Netherlands (c. 500 – 750 AD).
The Merovingian burials of Geldrop were found on the farmyards of a settlement dating from the seventh century in 1991 and 1992. The burials are scattered over the settlement site. They are probably located on five or six farmyards.
Oud-Leusden (meaning Old Leusden, the deserted village) presents one of those rare occasions in the Netherlands where both cemetery and settlement have been excavated. They are situated right next to each other.
The cemetery of Posterholt was discovered by the Archeologische Werkgroep of the Heemkundevereniging Roerstreek. In 1984 it was excavated by the State Archaeological Service and the Heemkundevereniging Roerstreek.
In the 1980’s the interior of the basilica of Saint-Servatius in Maastricht was excavated by the Town Archaeological Service. Next to a myriad of architectural remains, four hundred early medieval graves were found. They add up numerous graves found in the Pandhof, Vrijthof and Sint Servaasklooster excavations. The whole complex counts almost 2000 early medieval graves.
