The Roman Legion camp Vindonissa at around 80 AD at modern Windisch in Switzerland. (Swipe to see the entire image)

Wikipedia: “Vindonissa (from a Gaulish toponym in *windo- "white") was a Roman legion camp at modern Windisch, Switzerland. It was probably established in 15 AD. In an expansion around 30, thermal baths were added. The Legio XIII Gemina was stationed at Vindonissa until 44 or 45. With the arrival of the 21st legion (XXI Rapax) the camp was rebuilt with stone fortifications. After the 21st legion had looted the countryside in 69, it was replaced by the 11th legion (XI Claudia) which remained stationed until 101. After this date, Vindonissa was a civilian settlement, with a castle built in the 4th century. The remains of the camp are listed as a heritage site of national significance. The city of Brugg hosts a small Roman museum, displaying finds from the legion camp.”

Wir waren kreativ! Von der Haarnadel aus Knochen, übers Messer schmieden bis hin zur Räucherschale aus Sandstein schlagen ;) Wer auch will hat diesen Samstag & Sonntag noch die Gelegenheit ...und man kann noch viel mehr machen am Legionärspfad in Windisch. Auf und hin! 😊

Legion XI, Schnuppertag #legionxi #vindonissa #römer #lager

Apropos #heimat, dem heutigen Thema der #kinderbuchchallenge: An unserem Wohnort haben zu Zeiten der Römer über 6'000 Legionäre gelebt. Wir haben uns am heutigen #römertag auf ihre Spuren begeben. Zuhause haben wir einen Stein aus römischer Zeit an der Wand hängen, der bei den Ausgrabungen vor dem Hausbau gefunden wurde. Schön, ein Stück Geschichte mitzunehmen in die Zukunft!
