Within my PhD project, I analyse the developmental and cultural history and influence of fortified landscapes in Scandinavia by means of selected examples. My primary research region is located in the western part of the Baltic Sea, which covers today’s states of Denmark, Germany and Sweden, in the time frame between the 17th and the 20th century. The primary empirical base of the project is dedicated to the former Danish fortress Christianspries / Friedrichsort, which is located on the western shore of the Kiel Fjord. Furthermore, the fortress is considered to be one of the most important post medieval heritage sights in Schleswig-Holstein.
