The striking Staffelberg plateau was already around 5000 BC. Settled; this is evidenced by stone axes and devices made of flint and a few small shards of vessels. The mountain was visited again and again in the following millennia and was populated. Weapons and jewelry made of bronze were found from the early Urnfield Period. It is unclear whether the settlement was fortified in these early times, as is the case for the Ehrenbürg and the Heunischenburg. In the late Hallstatt period, from approx. 600 BC. BC, after an interruption another settlement began which is attributed to the Celts. Fortification is documented for the first time from this time.
The Celts used the prominent summit plateau to build a fortified settlement area, a so-called oppidum.
