Burgenlandkreis is a district in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany.

History[edit]

The district was established by merging the former districts of Burgenlandkreis and Weißenfels as part of the reform of 2007. On 16 July 2007, the district parliament decided to change the name again to Burgenlandkreis coming into effect on 1 August 2007.[2]

In 2015 the skeletal remains of an ancient inhabitant of Karsdorf dated from the Early Neolithic (7200 BP) were analyzed, he turned out to belong to the paternal T1a-M70 lineage and maternal lineage H1.[3][4]
