Since the person who won WOGE 78, j, hasn't come forward for nearly a month here's WOGE 79.

Just to make this clear: I haven't won WOGE 78, I just want the game to keep going.

The rules:

Q: What is When on Google Earth?
A: It’s a game for archaeologists, or anybody else willing to have a go!

Q: How do you play it?
A: Simple, you try to identify the site in the picture.

Q: Who wins?
A: The first person to correctly identify the site, including its major period of occupation, wins the game.

Q: What does the winner get?

A: The winner gets bragging rights and the chance to host the next When on Google Earth on his/her own blog!

Here it is, WOGE 79:

Have fun and good luck!

As per Alun's suggestion here's a zoomed-out picture. I'm going to continue to zoom out or give hints (in the comments) until someone gets it:


  1. Well, is nobody playing anymore or is it just too dificult?

  2. OK,
    we're in Central Europe and close to the coast.

  3. New Tip:
    We are in Northern Germany

  4. Have you thought of zooming out step by step until someone gets it?

  5. Hi Alun,

    indeed I have, but I didn't think anyone paid any attention anymore...

  6. OK, this tip should enable you to solve it: we're dealing with a western Slavic structure

  7. The Slavs in question were Obotrites and probably Wagrians

  8. It's the 'Oldenburg Wall' 7th/8th century, the centre of power for the Abodrite tribe in the Wagrian region. we've popped in a few times over the past few months and your last hint finally got it for us...


  9. Will post up a new WOGE tomorrow on confirmation from Matt that we're correct at

  10. You're completely correct Declan.
    Now WOGE can finally resume normally...

  11. Thanks Matt - WOGE 80 is up now at:
