The article describes the features and finds from the Hallstatt period burial mound at Erlangen -Kriegenbrunn (Germany). Hermann Hornung excavated this mound in 1930 after non -professionals had destroyed the central grave. Shortly after the excavation, Hornung published his results in two small articles. In the 1970s Bernhard Hänsel started collecting all available information about the burial mound and initiated anthropological analyses. Although Michael Hoppe had discussed the mound in his work about the Hallstatt period in Central Franconia (1986), Hänsel was convinced that it needed further investigation. Long after his retirement, he gave all his documents about Kriegenbrunn to the author in order to publish the mound again, make corrections and particularly ascertain the number of persons in the several graves at Kriegenbrunn.
