He shall be buried in the monastery of Wunstorf, which he founded before.

The other fallen (like Bodo) may be buried on the battle ground and 3 other Places, venareted as heroes by the people. Then they fall into oblivion until their graves were rediscovered during the 12th. century. Earl "Volrad I of Danneberg" thereupon founded the monastery of Ebstorf, where the human remains of the heroes where brought to.

The Monastery of Ebstorf is also famous for the creation and housing one of the most important medieval world maps, called the Ebstorf Map, illustrated during the 14th. century.

Then for a long time, she fell in oblivion (again) but was re-discovered during the 20th century in a small forgotten room inside the monastery, parts of it destroyed by gnawing mice and also by a fire during World War II. Fortunetely older copies remained and so the missing parts were reconstruated and restaurated.
