Classical archeology broke away from classical philology in Rostock in 1881 when Gustav Körtes was appointed to a newly established chair . Until Gottfried von Lücken retired , the subject was represented for more than 60 years by not infrequently well-known specialist representatives in Rostock. In the GDR, however, the subject quickly lost its importance and for a long time Konrad Zimmermann was the only representative of a subject that had become dependent. It was not until 1992 that Zimmermann became a full professor and Classical Archeology became independent again alongside Classical Philology and Ancient History in the Heinrich Schliemann Institute for Classical Studies .
