Die Heisterburg, auf dem Wall

Bei der Heisterburg im Deister handelte es sich um die Reste einer Wallburganlage des 10. bis 12. Jahrhunderts in der Nähe des Lauenauer Ortsteils Feggendorf auf dem Gebiet der Samtgemeinde Nenndorf in Niedersachsen.

1875 veröffentlichte ein Heimatforscher und Pastor aus Barsinghausen-Hohenbostel seine Nachforschungen [1] zur Namensherkunft der Heisterburg. Demnach wurde die Anlage noch im 16. Jahrhundert Hoyer, Hoysburg oder Hoiesburg genannt. In alten Flurkarten wird das Gelände 1574 als hoiser Burch, 1651 Hoisburg und 1840 Heuser Burg genannt. Der Wortstamm Hoyer leitet sich vom alten Wort hoye für Hütung ab. Es ist sinnverwandt mit den in anderen Orten gebräuchlichen Bezeichnung Warte für derartige Anlagen. Hoysburg hat demnach die Bedeutung einer in erhöhter Position gelegenen Wächterburg, von der das Umland zu überblicken und zu überwachen ist.

More About Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
