Lost Roman camp found in Germany
Published on November 3rd, 2011 | by Admin0
Occupied between 11 and 7BC and the size of seven football pitches, the military installation was probably used to control crossings points on the Lippe and act a supply depot for outlying posts.
“The monument has up to this point been allowed to lie in the ground widely undisturbed for over 2,000 years – an absolute rarity, and, from an archaeological point of view, absolutely ideal,” said Doctor Michael Rind, the chief archaeologist working on the camp.
