The spectacular tombs of Mušov in Moravia (CZ) and Gommern near Magdeburg in Central Germany provide a deep insight into the self-understanding and internationality of Germanic elites before, during and after the Marcomannic wars. A synopsis of grave finds from the lower Elbe area, Central Germany and the region north of the middle Danube, clearly shows that contacts visible in the archaeological record between the lower Elbe area and the empire of Vannius, later the Markomannic-Quadic centre of power in present-day Moravia and Southwest Slovakia, existed from the Augustan-Claudian period up until after the Markomannic wars. At the same time, however, it becomes clear that during the 3rd cent. A. D. a distinct new orientation of the relations of the Germanic elites was taking place: away from the route to the middle Danube in the south via the central and southern Oder region, to a new connection upstream along the river Elbe to Central and Southwest Germany.
