Since the 18th century, city historians and archaeologists have been researching on Freiburg's building sites. In the course of time they have systematised and refined their documentation methods. An outstanding example of the archaeological research on buildings is the Museum für Stadtgeschichte itself. By means of remains and excavation findings, visitors to the building can learn about its development from a late medieval dwelling house via a baroque artist's residence to the museum.

With their diverse skills and expertise they brought innovations in technology, education and religion, whose influence has persisted up the present day.
