i'm the perfect roman legion, their new castles, steegal is maximus. and i think you already know what the topic will be on this trip. exactly. i'm following the footsteps of the romans through germany as you get to come along. ah, i starting cologne, which was an important city even in roman time. i also follow the roman border fortifications lehman. 5 and i'll show you of the reconstructed book roman forts. ah, ah, in ancient times, cologne was called colonial aga lindsey on the dance houses
monumental buildings and couples, st shape the cityscape. today the cologne cathedral towers above the metropolis as its principal landmark remains from the roman erupt has been preserved in many places. right next to the cathedral is a part of the old city gate. for over 4 centuries, cologne played a vital part of the frontier of the roman empire. the leemis major empire state roads converged here from the south west and north. they carried goods. people at news from the whole world to the capital of the province of germania,
inferior and to date, wrote to run where they were 1st laid out in ancient cologne. 2000 years ago, this was one of the main axis of roman cologne. well, and today it's one of the most important shopping streets in the city. she, like i said, are traces of the romans has also been found on the ryans opposite bank in colon doyce. the outlines of afford the roman empire with huge and the romans made it very clear where the fear of influence begin. so they both forts and watch towers, and also used obvious natural landmarks such as the rhine. the around 2000 years ago, the roman empire stretched from the atlantic ocean to asia minor. and from africa to the north sea. part of the border ran along the river right
up to $30000.00 soldiers was stationed on it, facing the germanic tribes. the wet limits as the frontier is known began in rhineland palatinate cross nor fried westphalia in the netherlands, and ended at the north sea coast. in 2021, but the mess germanic coast was named a world heritage site. in january 2020, the netherlands and the german states, nor ryan west failure and rhineland palatinate submitted a joint application. t anesco. the wet lemurs has been added to, to frontier sections already named as well. heritage one is hadrian war and the anti war in britain, the other, the upper germanic, and race him leim as it begins south bombs and drums, 550 kilometers, starting in. right. and books limits follows another river, the danube,
from the barrier through austria and finally to bulgaria. this section 2 is now on the list of applicants to you and asked me in cologne. i drop by at the romano germanic museum exhibits the archaeological heritage of the city and its environs with an emphasis on the roman iran staff member cut me in. yes, good shows me around. ah, what hold the colonial cologne was, in fact, the capital of the province manya inferior. so it was the administrative center, the governor who administered the entire providence resided here, which is why cologne was so important. and this is where the very earliest romans came to live on the rhine. people came from all over the roman empire to live in
this vibrant city on the rhine. for example, this man from spain. why was it so important to him to have on the tombstone if he is or was the citizen of cologne? what about and often vaguely had is a huge deal with apparently he felt very much easier. and chrome was, in fact an attractive city and roman times. it had a flourishing economy. commerce was burgeoning, they were craftsman. you could make really good money here. you can see that he was a roman citizen by the toga. the typical roman robes he's wearing here. but not all the citizens of cologne ran around like fish. they looked a bit different here on the frontier, far away from rome. via we can have a look at that over here. what do you notice? maybe a special head of the turban. it can also be the halo signs i'm going to didn't
distance out. yes, it does look a bit like that. but the idea about the hat was better. this is what's known as an indian phone, it talk to the cost of the native b and in particular married women. and in fact, the people of this area, including the romans, who moved here, adapt to the local climate in winter. it was cold and wet. so they didn't wear linen tunic 6, my kind but thick will load my coats and maybe even trousers, even if they were seen as barbaric. but they kept you warm then you would be wearing a tunic tunic. has that mean that this is a mix of cultures the germanic, and the romans going to the you precisely, the romans was very pragmatic. when they came across something they thought was a good idea. they adopted it or not our tour, at least on past or late the crafted glasses. i can hardly believe they are 2000 years old. this special cup is the most precious piece in the
collection. learn was may just center of class production. you got the materials they needed to make and also found near by and that's what the romans did in abundance and then traded very, very far 100 with the see or the last for kids to plots for kids who passed. oh no, not the sandals, but you come up with these with packing flag and apparently when it came to creativity, the romans were well ahead of their time. cologne is over 2000 years old, but there are even older cities here, for example, tree, or kempton, or warns and they all claim the title of german. nice oldest city. well, but who is right? the chair,
captain boom. they'd all love to lay claim the title, germany's oldest city trick claims, the longest history as a roman city. as opposed to a military camp or settlement. the trip was called a good trip room for about a century population of around $70000.00. it was the biggest city north of the ups . it was even briefly one of the capitals of the roman empire during the reign of emperor constantine. the number of structures remain to bear witness to this golden age. the points of negroes are black gate, for instance. when was the city actually founded?
most sources mentioned italian around 1816 b. c. e. ah. others with the still the coveted title of germany's oldest city on homes. the council stablished a settlement on the spot around $5000.00 to be later the romans are thought to have built the 14th kenton, on the other hand, is the 1st town in germany to be mentioned in writing a book written by jug or 1st struggle in 18 si come but as the romans called it, the administrative centre unseat of the governor of the roman province of racier. a couple of other german cities are quite old. for example, both for settlement as well. the question of germany's oldest city has
yet to be answered. the conflicting opinions are often clued by local patriotism and different criteria, but they all have their long histories in common, bolstered by logical evidence. ah, i left cologne and trebled south for an hour to void. the point where the leemis branches off from the right. my destination is the roman world living museum. how heavy is a chain meal shirt, how we're selling and trading done. here the visitors are invited to touch, take part and try things out. of course, i can't resist. visitors to the roman
world can learn more about the location, origins and function of the ancient leemis in rhineland. the less made a reconstruct inspection of the wall trench and tell us 8 friends makes it easier to visualize. why was the leemis actually built? well, the romans tried to expand their empire to the north, but there were the students and instead of waiting endless battles against them, they drew a line. the leemis, the romans suffered enormous losses and what became known as the various disaster in the year 9 back then. 20000 soldiers died in the universe forest and you can still find traces of these battles today. ah, the
the me, quintillion virus gives me back. my legions, emperor augustus is said to have cried out when he was told his general virus had lost 3 entire legions along with 6 auxiliary cohorts in the battle of toy buck forest. the attackers were germanic rebels, commanded by our minis. according to ancient historians, the slaughter went on for several days on a field, many kilometers long. but where exactly did this fateful battle take place? the most likely site is one found your cake. liza north of us network research on the battle known as the varian disaster has been going on here for 30 years. not only is kind of fascinating excavations,
but an archaeological monument and museum several markers in the open air give a broad overview of the course of the battle. the park is over 20 hector's in area steel plates. mark the romans march along a narrow path between the woods and the more it's still unknown. what took place here? what is known is that after losing this battle, the roman forces withdrew to the western banks of the ryan. sporadic forays were made into germania for another 7 years, but the romans lacked the infrastructure and the germanic tribes. gorilla style attacks more them down. eventually the romans gave up and fortified their existing
boarders. ah, ah, germany leemis wrote one of the countries many holiday. ruth picks up in boy it traces the former roman frontier for 700 kilometers driggers perch on the venue . i followed a stretch of it round science like this pointed the way as an ap with either an interactive map or a brochure is helpful for quickly locating the archaeological digs. the reconstruction and such as the lead miss tower and her site. the lawyer. look, a still cannot offer you today. i would use antonio antonio,
close the door us wonderful of the li, misty, the wholeness as they are called gift tourists at the various li miss sites. manfred, co blah, has been showing visitors around in his shop for over 10 years now. what was the exact function of this dollar and told movies and anybody to him from the towers? they kept him on the lee mess with the border between the roman empire and germany a lot. they always had the talents surroundings in view. if someone approach with hostile intent, i could give a signal from the town than from tom. all that he could have done it with a mirror, if his son was on the polished brass would have done the job to put it as missing. that's why this tubers hanging. here is a toolbar here. if it was foggy, they could have given a signal with this horn atlantic night, with a torn with fire. bitten for your time. can i try mechanical?
try another humor. it was harder to me. i couldn't do it, but didn't use until news minutes. oh, now we have, it sounds a bit like an elephant and claudius antonio's had another surprise in store for me a little more. they told me this is the more i told you. it's a cheese pace made from sheep's cheese mixed with herbs. intended okay, quick. the good will try they are gonna load up properly of delicious glow. joseph, it's super delicious all gets cold and now comes to move some wine beverage. the
romans enjoined montgomery, we take an aperitif today to an apple. the teeth thing comes in it is you make this in that this might take a liter of wrestling, wine sling 200 grams of honey to it, and a nice tip of pepper. and then i let that steep for a while on the team. pull the code and use was a and also delicious. next to the tower, a roman garden has been recreated. this is a roman sundial. also the romans like to drink wine. and this is what a roman herb garden could have looked like. i pressed on to the hill, leemis passed it, lead to a little ford, with earthworks and the palisade face. the foundations have been reconstructed to show the ruins.
can you imagine how it used to look here? well, i can, in any case, many reconstructions have been made and not only along the limits. there are traces of the romans in many places in germany, for example, in sar land. a whole villa was reconstructed there and turned into an archaeological open air museum. well, take a look at that. ah, ah, this is how the privileged romans of the provinces once lived in the country, dinners with well manicured gardens, those a floors, and all the amenities the ancient world had to offer. the best place to get an impression is this life. is it a bog,
a roman country estate near in style and most of the valley. it was meticulously reconstructed, a top, the original ruins, the only one of its kinds in the worlds. in the 4 years, the head of the house, the dominant, receives his guests characteristic of the coffee ceilings, frescoes and half columns decorating the ruse. at one time, the entire whole most likely had most a flaws. i of course the village also had a roman boss with the dressing when cold and hot boss and a kind of sitting room. the tip of darion everything together would have been quite effective it impressed in friends and business partners. good food was every
bit as essential to the roman lifestyle. as many as 30 courses might be served up at the banquet, prepared and kitchen like this one thing who did such extension dishes as mingo tons and hazel mice ah, normally in none pandemic times, the roman days would have been held at the village in august complete with market and gladiator battles. ah, ah, check out some of our favorite travel picks on instagram. follow us on data, will you travel? the know back to the li
miss wrote me a site to see is the reconstructed romans. i booked for new frankfurt, archeologists and gardner shows me around the premises. you know, look pretty much the way we see it right now. it isn't it roughly i this is sean baton is not run by. it's very close to it, but we're dealing with 2 different time periods for the reconstruction. a large part of the buildings were put up around 1900 and then another 2 complexes went up after 2000. but i wasn't. and of course, the state of research from 190-0100, was very different from 2013. and so the proposals for reconstruction are also different. in the course of time, we've simply made new discoveries. 100. in ancient times, 600 men were stationed here as a border patrol. they lived in these barracks the company quarters are secured with a roman lock, well known as
a lock and sliding bolt. and now you see if you can get it open off my phone. you don't lose your patients lock and sliding bolt. i can't do it. i give up as the i you hold it like this is through an s lighted person here and you turn it in. so the points in this direction site then you lift it up and you pull it over, you go out a little because the lot catches a little bit hot on and then it's open. so all right, and you go to an 8 men ones share this little 2 room apartment. it's a little bit different. now we're entering the basilica,
the great hall. and that's the part of the print keep, you know, the staff building in the center before. and of course, it's a large open hall where the entire company could assemble for celebrations has been a real event. or just for drills on wet rainy days, talking one second. on the subject of drills, it's about time i had to look at the arms and learn some roman combat techniques. first fear throwing then archery, sort of the other, the mac. so the 1st thing we do is threat the bowstring onto the boat, isn't him, and this is how we do it. often it takes a little strength. we use a little trailing in climb into the bow front and property behind our legs. so we can slip the bowstring onto the limiting. it's all going feet and it looks easier than it is. but after several attempts, i've got it and we can get started. does that look legionary
also? don't hold it too long. you'll get cramps. ah! what would legionaries training be without sword fighting happening? so isn't corruption. in fact, they would train using wicker shields instead of the proper one and wouldn't sort this be their heavier than the real ones. so they made for wonderful training because of course you'd build up more muscles strength and enduring. and you'd last longer and battle thing came from congressman for that age. you don't get hurt. exactly. the lighting is up on the o damage damaged. yes. yeah. the
