Rethra - Lieps, on the South side of the Lake Tollensesee
Rethra was an early town center in the region of Redarians. On the basis of written and archaeological sources it is possible to locate this place between the Tollensesee lake and the Uecker river. Especially important is the southern side of the Tollensesee lake and the neighboring Lieps, where archaeologists were able to prove the existence of an early Slavic town whose importance had not been merely local. Discovered were the dwellings of noblemen, a burial ground, three settlements of servant quarters, and several cult localities. The author is of the opinion that all these represent the early town center of Rethra.
