Römischer Vicus Eisenberg - Burggarten Appartements

Römischer Vicus Eisenberg

The Römischer Vicus Eisenberg was a center of iron smelting. Since 1992, over 20 houses have been uncovered during excavations. The discoveries date back to 40 - 450 BC. You can see reconstructed cellars, the documentation center with original Roman heating systems and foundations, 2 ovens, 2 sarcophagi, the replica of a votive stone, a bloomery furnace, and the reproduction of a fire pit. These findings, replicas, and stagings present the everyday life of Romans in a small city during this time.

The museum in Eisenberg displays a large part of the findings that come from the nearby Römischer Vicus of Eisenberg and one of the burial grounds belonging to this settlement.
