Hayo Vierck (born 5 August 1939, Bentheim; d. 16 March 1989, Reichenau Island) was a German archaeologist, who made a distinguished contribution to German Early Medieval archaeology through research in the industrial arts.[1]

Career[edit]

Hayo Vierck took an early interest in the history and archaeology of his homeland while at secondary school, and also had early contact with Haithabu. After taking his school certificate examinations in 1962 in Plön, Vierck studied Pre- and Proto-history with the subsidiary subjects of Classical Archaeology and Folklore in Munich and obtained his doctorate in 1969 under Joachim Werner with a dissertation on North English and West Scandinavian Costume Accessories in the 5th and 6th Centuries. Finishing that, he undertook a second research project in Oxford, which culminated in his attainment of Bachelor of Letters (B. Litt.) in the Department of European Archaeology. He became Fellow of the External research unit 7 'Medieval research' of Münster University from 1969 until 1985, and Professor of 'Art and Craft in the Early Middle Ages' (Kunst und Handwerk im Frühmittelalter) at the Seminar for Protohistory and Early History. His special research strengths were his Work of Eligius[2] and the Imitatio Imperii.[3][4]

He was married to Sigrid Vierck, who wrote a dissertation on the Ægis, Die Aigis: Zu Typologie und Ikonographie eines Mythischen Gegenstandes[5] and in 2008 was elected Abbess of the Lutheran conventual monastery of Walsrode Abbey.
