Lauterhofen lies northwest of Regensburg in Germany. A necropolis dating to the second half of the 7th and the first half of the 8th centuries is situated here. The paper first synchronises chronologically Lauterhofen with the cemetery Altenerding. This is possible due the development of glass-beads and saxes. In the second part of the paper the space-structures of Lauterhofen are analysed. The area of the cemetery is organized such that the place of burial could symbolize the gender, age and social status of the deceased. The measuring system of the necropolis corresponds with religious and astronomical foundations and furthermore, it repeats itself in the topography of the mythical surrounding landscape.
