Hamburg, a proud historical Hanseatic city, has a strong sense of tradition and a view of history, which is shaped by many seemingly irrefutable cornerstones. Louis the Pious made it to the capital of Nordalbingia . Hammaburg was a central town with crafts and trades as well. Melting pots are evidence of metalworking, antlers and bone remnants reveal bone carver's work and loom weights indicate the production of clothing. From the 9th century, products from many regions made their way to Hammaburg. The place remained a hub for trans-regional trade.
