. Commercial oil shale mining ceased in 1971, and a cement factory built in the quarry failed the following year. The land was slotted for use as a landfill, but the plans came to nought, and the Hessian state (Hesse) bought the site in 1991 to secure scientific access. In the few years between the end of mining and 1974, when the state began preparing the site for garbage disposal, amateur collectors were allowed to collect fossils. The amateurs developed the "transfer technique"

Encyclopædia Britannica Article They settled in central and northern Hesse and southern Lower Saxony, along the upper reaches of the Weser River and in the valleys and mountains of the Eder, Fulda and Weser River regions, a district approximately corresponding to Hesse-Kassel, though probably somewhat more extensive. According to Tacitus, ''Histories'' iv. under 70 among them were the Batavians, until an internal quarrel drove them out, to take up new lands at the mouth of the Rhine.

The genus currently includes a single virus species (International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses), ''Marburg marburgvirus''. The members of the genus (i.e. the actual physical entities) are called marburgviruses. The name ''Marburgvirus'' is derived from the city of Marburg in Hesse, West Germany (where Marburg virus was first discovered) and the taxonomic (Taxonomy) suffix ''-virus'' (which denotes a virus genus). Note A Marshal of France since 24 February 1757, he was commander of the armies in Westphalia during the Seven Years' War. On 26 July 1757, he won the Battle of Hastenbeck against Hanoverian and Hessian (Hesse) troops under the Duke of Cumberland (Prince William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland) during the Invasion of Hanover (Invasion of Hanover (1757)) but was replaced as French commander shortly afterwards. The '''Aabach''', formerly called the '''Große Aa''', is a 14 km long river in Germany, a left tributary of the river Afte. It rises in eastern North Rhine-Westphalia near the border with Hesse, between Bad Wünnenberg and Marsberg. Its source is where the regions Briloner Höhen and Sindfeld meet, in Brilon-Madfeld. From there it flows north between up to 503 m high mountains through a wonderful forested landscape, partly in the natural park Diemelsee. After a few kilometers it flows into the artificial lake Aabachstausee. It flows to the north and empties only about 3.5 km further north after Bad Wünnenberg, where it flows into the Afte. The drainage area of the Aabach reaches the divide (water divide) between the Weser and Rhine river basins: the Aabach flows to the north and drains into the Rhine via the Afte, Alme (Alme River) and Lippe Rivers, while the small rivers that rise on the southern side of the ridge drain into the Weser through the Hoppecke and Diemel. Before then, however, most national armies were in fact composed of many nationalities. For example, although the Swedish Army under Gustavus Adolphus was originally recruited by a kind of national conscription, the losses of the Thirty Years' War meant that by 1648 over 80% of its troops were foreign mercenaries. In Spain, armies were recruited from all the Spanish European territories including Spain, Italy, Wallonia and Germany. The French recruited soldiers from Germany, Switzerland and elsewhere as well as from France. Britain recruited Hessian (Hesse) troops until the late 18th century. Irish Catholics made careers for themselves in the armies of many European states (See the Flight of the Wild Geese). name Germany districts Hesse title border 30px Flag of Hesse (Image:Flag of Hesse.svg) Urban and rural districts in the state of Hesse in Germany border 30px Flag of Germany (Image:Flag of Germany.svg) listclass hlist Geography Heiligenstadt is approximately 14 km east of the tripoint where the states of Thuringia, Hesse and Lower Saxony meet.

Behrens attended the Christianeum Hamburg from September 1877 until Easter 1882. He studied painting in his native Hamburg, as well as in Düsseldorf and Karlsruhe, from 1886 to 1889. In 1890, he married Lilly Kramer and moved to Munich. At first, he worked as a painter (Painting), illustrator and book-binder (bookbinding) in a sort of artisanal way. He frequented the bohemian (Bohemianism) circles and was interested in subjects related to the reform of life-styles. In 1899 Behrens accepted the invitation of the Grand-duke Ernst-Ludwig of Hesse to be the second member of his recently-inaugurated Darmstadt Artists' Colony, where Behrens built his own house and fully conceived everything inside the house (furniture, towels, paintings, pottery, etc.) The building of this house is considered to be the turning point in his life, when he left the artistic circles of Munich and moved away from the Jugendstil towards a sober and austere style of design.
