This article has redirects from Hartz mountains and Hartz Mountains, but this article makes no mention of Hartz as an alternate name. As there is an actual mountain range in Tasmania with this name, I would like to remove the re-directs - is there any potential of confusion by doing this? -- Chuq 22:43, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

Seems ok, "Hartz" is just a misspelling. --Chl 22:53, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

Beliefs[edit]

Can we add some facts about the supersitions surronding this mountain chain? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 71.175.5.174 (talk) 01:23, 1 March 2007 (UTC).

Settlement[edit]

The history section mentions settlement in the Harz began only a 1000 years ago or so. This may need to be revised since in 1993, 21 Bronze Age skeletons were found in a cave near Osterode which date back 3000 years. (Search on: Lichtenstein Cave Osterode Harz)

Citations[edit]

The article needs a fair amount of in-line citations and additional references. I'm pretty sure there is more information, online, about this large natural area and the histories surrounding it. Simply from a readers perspective (living outside of Germany) sections like the region's history - Middle Age to Present - reads like someone just had a bunch of info and started writing. Whether true or not that's what it reads like and with no verifications of anything there's no way I can know if it's true or if the "famous" books listed are even remotely important to the subject.
