Halle (Saale) - Archäologen haben es gut: Jeder Bauherr muss nämlich die amtlichen Bodendenkmalpfleger fragen, bevor er den Bagger vorfahren lässt. Und der Investor bezahlt die von den Wissenschaftlern eventuell angeordnete archäologische Grabung auch noch. Das ist im Denkmalschutzgesetz des Landes geregelt. Die Kollegen der Bau- und Kunstdenkmalpflege haben es da schwerer; sie müssen oft hart mit Hauseigentümern um den Erhalt der Kulturgütern ringen. „Wirtschaftliche Zumutbarkeit“ ist eine Kriterium für den Erhalt der Baudenkmale. Ins Depot des Landesamtes für Archäologie und Denkmalpflege hingegen gelangen jedes Jahr Zehntausende Funde von privat finanzierten Ausgrabungen in Halle. So wurde beispielsweise vor dem Bau des Saturn-Kaufhau...

Le fait, rapporté par le chanoine Olivier Roduit, archiviste de l’Abbaye de Saint-Maurice, prouve deux vérités historiques.

Douglas Elliman Real EstateThe Castle di Sismano has recently been in use as a bed and breakfast.If you've always dreamt of being the proprietor of a fiefdom, consider this $8.3 million property in Todi, Italy an ideal entry point.

That's over 1,000 years of royal inhabitants. The estate for sale is comprised of an 18,000-square-foot castle that includes a functioning (and well-reviewed) bed-and-breakfast, plus parts of the adjoining medieval village and a complex of residential bu...
