Culture and society

  • After the sinking of the island of Rungholt during the second Marcellus flood (see below), many of the fishermen and farmers who had become homeless come together to make a living together. The so-called Wogemänner, who spread fear and terror, do this through raids and raids on small farms and by boarding small merchant ships in order to repeat what the " Naked Hans " had previously taken from them. To do this, they settle in the village of Westerhever and build a fortress , the Wogemannsburg , in a difficult-to-access place .
  • around 1362: The Fürsteneck house in Frankfurt am Main is built. An extensive contract dated May 18, which the family von Holzhausen concludes with their neighbors, provides for the first time precise information about the status quo and structural events of the time. Accordingly, it was agreed with the neighbors, the couple Heinz and Gerhus Byrbruwer, to erect a stone gable between the two properties, which would support the ridge beam of the neighboring house.
