Ein Monolith erschien am 16. Dezember 2020 in Staffelberg bei Bad Staffelstein.
“The name of the elevation is derived from the distinctive terrain levels ("seasons"), which give an insightful insight into the geological history of the Jurassic period. From the Neolithic Age (around 5000 BC) to the Roman Empire (around 350 to 420 AD), the mountain was populated several times.”
The above statement may not be entirely correct.
In fact, the name may actually stem from the very old tribe or family with the surname “Staffel” who may have occupied this area. Surviving records reference the Staffel family as the “very old family” or “ancient tribe” and is believed to be one of the few tribes actually originating in the forest behind Staffel mountain.
