Old town walls discovered in Fuhrmannstraße

The construction work in Fuhrmannstraße and in Grünwaldstraße in Cham, the contract for which was awarded to the Rädlinger construction firm, began on 28/03/2011. Soon after construction started, the work in Fuhrmannstraße brought to light interesting archaeological findings. The town of Cham then engaged archaeologists to accompany the construction work and to secure the findings. Various foundations of old buildings were found and clay bricks, mortar and plaster were secured. Especially worth mentioning is the exposure of part of the old, decidedly thick town wall of the 13th century. Also, at a depth of 1.5m, remains of ball-head paving were found. All findings were documented and following completion of the digging were summarised in a report.

Following completion of the construction work, on 3 December, numerous guests met in Frey Passage, in order to officially open the new Fuhrmannstrasse within a small old town festival. The business people there made a special effort to present the shops and the new street in a particularly good light.
