Archaeologists have found a Roman fort in Germany

During excavations in the city of Gernsheim (Germany), archaeologists from the University of Frankfurt discovered a Roman fort, built around 80-110, under the soil. ad. In particular, two V-shaped moats and pits for pillars, which were part of a defensive tower, were discovered, the portal reports Science and life.

Archaeologists have found a Roman fort in Germany


The Romans built a fort in Gernsheim to control the territory east of the Rhine and expand the transport network associated with Mogntiatsum (now Mainz), which was one of the largest centers of the Roman Empire north of the Alps.

“Fort Grönchsheim was located at the intersection of roads that led from the Roman cities of Mogontiacium, Augsburg and Ladenburg to Limès, the fortifications on the border of the empire. It is possible that here, on the Rhine, there was also a harbor, ”the publication says.

During excavations, archaeologists found a large number of objects. Scientists will explain this fact by the fact that the military, leaving the area, dismantled the building and buried ditches, in which there were a lot of unnecessary things and garbage.

"The golden bottom for us- said Hans-Markus von Kenel (Hans-Markus von Kaenel), professor at the Institute of Archeology at the University of Frankfurt. - We filled tray after tray with fragments of thin-walled, coarse and tare ceramics; Its dating will allow us to establish when the fort was left, with greater accuracy than was previously possible. ”.

Little is known about the Roman era of Gernsheim, although information about the presence of the Romans here appeared in the 19th century. Scientists believe that in this area there was a small settlement in which soldiers' families lived. However, urban development destroyed almost all traces of the Roman stay in the region.

        There is no strange article and no reference at all .. The Roman Empire was expanding and the fact that in Germany its outposts were surprising here .. (they drove the barbarians there .. the Gauls of the Germans ..) If you only judge that Russia (the third Rome is a descendant of Byzantium) Well then it is clear .. (we, too, drove barbarians there like the Romans ..))) now descendants of the Gauls appeared in Ukraine .. We crumble as usual)) bully But the main Gauls settled overseas ...! And we get to them .. The imperial spirit is in our genes ..))) wassat Glory to the Strategic Missile Forces of the Empire! drinks

          And for what minus ..? Russia is a follower of Byzantium .. They call us the Third Rome .. What is this? I’m not a historian, of course, but in fact it’s because Russia is a huge country (even despite all the temporary losses) .. And still ancient Arkaim (in the Urals) has a ring of cities of ancient 4500 BC with a high civilization at that time .. And they’re silent about this .. in the Western media .. (and yesterday on the Air Force website I read about the origin of Europeans .. they were Africans and Asians ... but some Siberian nation (there was a study at the genetic level) made them like that .. I don’t say this, I just wrote what I read .. and the analysis from different sources .. (I read the Air Force the other day ..) They don’t like Russia .. although the facts are already beaten in the face .. Well, okay .. We don’t have time for this ..! Surround us very much ..

            I won’t be surprised if they hide that this is still a settlement of the Slavs (after all, they were found there)
            and to the Europeans, it’s Vienna, so that they don’t speak there, but to me it personally reminds me of a mosque with minarets!

        There was during the fall of the Roman Empire one glorious uncle named Sidonius Apollinaris. He painted a very colorful Roman parasite during the fall of the empire. You read - a typical modern place to live, that overseas, that overhang.
        Here is an excerpt:
        "I respect one thing in you, one I rejoice, I am surprised that out of love for an impeccable life you avoid the company of shameful people, especially those who
        do not consider their dirty aspirations criminal and talk about them with disgusting laughter; to put it bluntly, they smear the hearing of another with indecent expressions; Know, then, that such are the notorious parasites (gnatho, parasite) of our country. Ruthless gossips, they invent rumors of crimes and exaggerate bad rumors; they talk a lot, but they won't say anything; want to amuse, but do not amuse; arrogant but fickle; curious but shy; and even more muzhik, from excessive efforts to be graceful in manners; they wonder at the whole present, ridicule the past and despise the future. Parasites are annoying when solicited; annoyed at being rejected; when given, they are greedy, and stingy when they return; they constantly complain when they demand their due, and loudly shout about themselves when they do what they are already obliged to do. When asked for a favor, they show great willingness, but are cunning when it is necessary to keep their word; their business is to change the secret, slander, refuse to return the received thing. They hate empty stomachs and seek out meals; praise is not those who live righteously, but who feed well. Such a person, however, is very stingy himself, and for him someone else's bread is the most delicious; at home he only has what he can pull off from dinner amidst a hail of slaps ... "

        Similarly. It is believed that empires have always given more than taken away.
        For example:
        - ALL the states of Western Europe grew out of the Roman Empire. If anyone knows what the Roman cities of Londinium and Lutecia (Lutetia) are called now? Even modern armies are fundamentally built on the Roman model;
        - The Mongol empire pulled Russian lands out of feudal fragmentation, allowing (not voluntarily, of course) them to unite around the Moscow principality;
        - What would the United States, Canada, Australia, India, South Africa be today without the British Empire? This is especially clear on the example of South Africa, when the white "mass" left there;
        - There is nothing to paint about the Russian Empire, the example of Ukraine, Central Asia and the Far East is more than obvious.

        It is not known how the absence of the ancient Roman state formation would be reflected in the course of our civilization.

        Sorry for the nonsense. ...


        I will give one example:

        § 984
        Schatzfund

        Wird eine Sache, die so lange verborgen gelegen hat, dass der Eigentümer nicht mehr zu ermitteln ist (Schatz), entdeckt und infolge der Entdeckung in Besitz genommen, so wird das Eigentum zur Hälfte von dem Entdeckerfürten der Mer , in welcher der Schatz verborgen war.


        Treasure Act:

        If a thing that has been forgotten (hidden) for so long that it was not possible to establish its owner, (in other words, the treasure) was found, then the rights to its ownership are divided equally on the finder and the owner of the land where the treasure was found.

        This is an exact copy of the law that acted on the territory of ancient Rome.

        Where in ancient sources (where Rome is mentioned) is it said about legions "rafting" along rivers, mass skirmishes. The tribes then settled along the rivers ... Or was Rome so stupid? That did not use the advantage of river communications? And this is after numerous campaigns on Mediterranean.

    But seriously, the Germans are very proud of the victory in the Teutonburg forest, when the leader of the Germanic Cherusky tribe Arminius (Herman) destroyed 9 Roman legions (3-18 thousand people) in September 27, and the Roman commander Quintilius Var died. The battle led to the liberation of Germany from the rule of the Roman Empire and was the beginning of a long war of the empire with the Germans. As a result, the German lands retained independence, and the Rhine became the northern border of the Roman Empire in the west. Roman Emperor Octavian Augustus fell into despair. Suetonius in the biography of Augustus clearly conveyed the despair of the emperor:
    "He was so crushed that for several months in a row he did not cut his hair and beard and more than once banged his head against the doorframe, exclaiming:" Quintilius Var, return the legions! "

    You never know where the Romans sat in their forts. And then ... couldn't the "barbarians" simply build a fortress in "likeness"?

    The Gauls could not destroy the Roman Empire because they lived in it as much as the Scots in Britain. It has already rotted inside and in the legions the percentage of Italians, not to mention the Romans, was low. In fact, the Germans fought with the Germans, the Sarmatians with the Huns for the emperor.

    Yes, all this is not true — it was a Russian fort, and in general the depth of centuries consists of 90% of Russian artifacts, especially Germany-Berlin is a Russian city (Berloga), and Prussia is one of the Russian tribes ... Read Professor V. Chudinov.

      Arkaim. It’s good that this is just an ancient city, just an ancient city on the territory of the Urals and nothing more, and the Chusovaya River broke its own channel, and not dug up by ancient Russ :))))

    Incorrect information! How can you! But what about Merkel? She studied in the GDR and was even in Moscow, and maybe in Kiev. Dill - the oldest civilization - they dug up the Black Sea! It cannot be that they do not leave their mark, well, at least excrement, there. I do not believe - a lie. British scientists should be involved and speak out on this fact with their characteristic principles. laughing

    I have a different question. Why are silent the same excavations in Germany with the settlements of the Slavs? Although there are even museums in northern Germany, they are no different from Novgorod. And the Vatican hides books written in Latin, but in Slavic?

      Slavic tribes of Luzhichans, Lutichs, Bodrichs, Pomeranians, and Ruyan since ancient times inhabited the territory of modern eastern, northern and partly north-western Germany, as well as part of Bavaria.
      However, as many researchers note, there is “an amazing coincidence of the tribal names of the Slav, Pomeranian and other Western Slavs with the most ancient ethnic names known in this territory at the turn of the first centuries AD” mentioned in Roman sources. There are about fifteen such paired, coinciding ancient and medieval Slavic names of the tribes living in the area.

      Later, during the course of medieval German expansion, the Slavic population underwent gradual assimilation for several centuries.

      In the XVIII century, the Labab language disappeared (the last area is Lower Saxony, the Lyuchov region). At present, the only not completely Germanized Slavic people of Germany remain Luzhichans.

        The trouble with the Slavs is that they, the German state of Karl, had already been cut (like the Romans of the Gauls) before the formation of a strong national state with a single religion and a single ruler. And the Slavic tribes disappeared as well as many tribes of Germans and Celts.

All the same, what are you, that Americans are that Poles from one shit are stuck together.
