Halle (Saale) - Archäologen haben es gut: Jeder Bauherr muss nämlich die amtlichen Bodendenkmalpfleger fragen, bevor er den Bagger vorfahren lässt. Und der Investor bezahlt die von den Wissenschaftlern eventuell angeordnete archäologische Grabung auch noch. Das ist im Denkmalschutzgesetz des Landes geregelt. Die Kollegen der Bau- und Kunstdenkmalpflege haben es da schwerer; sie müssen oft hart mit Hauseigentümern um den Erhalt der Kulturgütern ringen. „Wirtschaftliche Zumutbarkeit“ ist eine Kriterium für den Erhalt der Baudenkmale. Ins Depot des Landesamtes für Archäologie und Denkmalpflege hingegen gelangen jedes Jahr Zehntausende Funde von privat finanzierten Ausgrabungen in Halle. So wurde beispielsweise vor dem Bau des Saturn-Kaufhau...
