We report on a dedicated effort to identify and study metal-poor stars that are strongly enhanced in r-process elements ([r/Fe] > +1.0 dex; hereafter r-II stars), the Hamburg/ ESO R-process enhanced star survey (HERES). In this paper we describe a pilot study based on a set of 35 stars, including 23 from HK survey, eight from HES, and four comparison stars. We discovered two new r-II stars, CS 29497-004 ([Eu/Fe]=1.64+/-0.22) and CS 29491-069 ([Eu/Fe]=1.08+/-0.23). (AU)
