excursion_Weißenburg i.B._2017

The Roman Baths were constructed as part of a roman camp and garrison in order to protect the northern borders of the province Raetia, of which Augusta Vindelicorum (modern day Augsburg) was the capital city. Today the well preserved remains are one of the few examples of such a complex in Germany.

As part of the course “If these walls could talk: Reading Architecture in an Archaeological Context” we will be visiting the baths in order to explore aspects of roman construction and new methods of investigating architecture.

Students not following the course are welcome to join us for the day trip by sending an e-mail to Annalize Rheeder before 20 December 2017 at:
